This is the Lake of Como near the city of Gravedona.
Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. It has an area of 146 km², making it the third largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. At over 400 m deep it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the bottom of the lake is more than 200 m below sea-level.
The lake is shaped much like the character “Y”. The northern branch begins at the town of Colico, while the towns of Como and Lecco sit at the ends of the southwestern and southeastern branches respectively. The small towns of Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna are situated at the intersection of the three branches of the lake: a triangular boat service operates between them.
Lake Como is fed in large part by the Adda River, which enters the lake near Colico and flows out at Lecco. This geological conformation makes the southwestern branch a dead end, and so Como, unlike Lecco, is often flooded.
The mountainous pre-alpine territory between the two southern arms of the lake—between Como, Bellagio and Lecco—is known as the Larian Triangle, or Triangolo lariano. The source of the river Lambro is here. At the centre of the triangle, the town of Canzo is the seat of the Comunità montana del Triangolo Lariano, an association of the 31 municipalities which represent the 71,000 inhabitants of the area.

Hello Franco, this is a very nice scene here. It is very picturesque and the still water and the mist and sky in the background, gives the image a silvery look.
Well done
Janice

Ciao Franco. In riferimento alla nota di Luciano. Detto da te che non è reato! Quando mai, vista la tua professione....! Scherzo lo sai.
Comunque foto stupenda. Un saluto affettuoso. PS. Dai uno sguardo anche alle mie foto su TE. Si accettano tutte le critiche, soprattutto quelle negative. Così abbiamo risolto il problema del voto di scambio!

Roberto

beh che dire..il lago di como è proprio cossì, quiet , morbido, e con le linee delle montagne che si tuffano nel lago, la provincia di como aveva fatto un disegno molto simile alla tua foto come manifesto pubblicitario della città e del suo lago anni fa ... m era solo un disegno e non bello come la tua foto
