CATCHING THE MOMENT - NO.1

I am no photographer, but these are a selection of photographs in which I was in the right place at the right time.

Living in the mountains above Cortona, I am surrounded by nature. When I can’t sleep, I have the consolation of amazing dawns. When I go out walking, I usually have the company of at least one of my dogs and more often than not my cats. One of my dogs is a Labrador who loves any type of water whether it be a puddle or a stream. At home we have a pond filled with croaking frogs who give me endless pleasure.  I am no photographer, but these are a selection of photographs in which I was in the right place at the right time.

....rightly or wrongly, we released the toad which meant the snake went hungry...
It took me hours in the freezing cold to get this shot...

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
