Photographer's Note

A view of yesterday afternoon, driving in the Parco del Ticino, a large Regional Park on the Western side of Milan, comin' back home after a long long lunch in a wonderful restaurant in a middle of the nature...and the nothing all around.

This are the autumnal colours of lower Lombardy in this days, just tones of brown and when we are happy with a beautiful sky...really often the sky is part of the brown world!

Anyway yesterday was a beautiful day, sunny and not cold, with 12-13° at noon, without cold wind.
