Sunset on Lucca’s wall

Late afternoon on the wall around Lucca is absolutely gorgeous at this time of year….well any time really, but the colour now is amazing.

The bare trees take on a rust colour.

It is a beautiful time of the year.

There are some posts on Bella Bagni di Lucca about some of the villages that make up Bagni di Lucca. I went on Saturday night to a dinner put on by the hunters of Casabasciana. I love being here!!!!!

  1. Lucca is such a wonderful city and, as you rightly say, beautiful at any time of the year. We are very lucky that it only takes a very short and pleasant drive from Bagni (25 minutes from our place). Great photos, Debra!

  20. I agree with Nia about the ‘poetic’ pictures with your camera, Debra. Along with your artistic eye and the handling of an excellent camera, you’ve captured those stunning sunset images very well. I feel as if I’m there with you enjoying the changing colours of the trees and the sky. Lovely!

  26. Lovely, lovely, lovely, especially with the changing sky and setting sun. It would be interesting to return weekly and update the leafing of the trees until they’re filled out, lush and green.
