Short Holiday in Ceriana, Italy

This post has nothing to do with my professional photography client work, but I can’t resist writing about last week’s holiday. I stayed in a little mountain village in west Italy near Sanremo.

Signs of spring in the snow

Only a few days ago I took some photos of beautiful crocuses in the nearby park. It was +13°C warm and spring was in the air… And then suddenly the temperature plummeted. It was snowing sideways for about 24 hours and mayhem on the roads. Some poor souls had to spend the night in their…
