The first snow around Bagni di Lucca

The first snow has fallen in the mountains around the villages of Bagni di Lucca. How I wish I was there to see it. The autumn has been spectacular this year (see Bella Bagni di Lucca), but now winter is definitely showing its face.

Local photographer, Paul Anthony Davies, has been out and about taking some gorgeous photos of the snow and is happy to share them with us.

I hope there is lots of snow when I return in February.



  1. Beautiful photos!

    • Yes, thank you Paul.

  2. That big hill rising with the dusting of snow is beautiful…we are used to seeing photos of deep snow, but there’s something very unusual about seeing that almost fragile beginning…the colors are still warm in the picture, and yet you know what’s coming…

    • I love the first dusting of snow on our mountains. I wis I was there.

  3. Deb, what a great photographer is Paul Anthony – you have shared some of his work before. Love those pictures of Bagni di Lucca right now. I have other friends travelling in Europe right now and it seems there is snow everywhere.
    I am sure there will be plenty of snow for you on your return in February. For now just enjoy the air con and or the 30 something degree days here.
    After all it is summer in Queensland.

    • The heat here in Brisbane hadn’t been too bad…yet. I know it will come and then I can dream about the snow in Bagni di Lucca.

  4. Beautiful photographs dear Debra, your first snow means for me, for us, snow is coming soon in here too 🙂 I can’t believe it is still like a summer day. Thank you, have a nice day, love, nia

    • November has been fairly warm in Bagni di Lucca as well. I think winter is now on the way.

  5. I LOVE the beautiful pictures of my grandfather’s city. Thank you!

    • Bagni di Lucca is a gorgeous group of villages.

  6. Just beautiful…..

    • I wish I was there to see it.

  7. Beautiful photos, Debra. 😃

    • Yes, Paul takes great photos.

  8. These photos actually make snow look nice, particularly the one with the bird, but I know different!

    • Snow is fun if you don’t have to live with it a lot.

  9. Beautiful photos…thank you Paul for sharing with us.

    • I would love to be there to see the first snow.

  10. Oh, how lovely the colours are. I can almost smell the crisp air; the rosy-breasted, fierce little Robin is my favourite

    • I love the winter landscape in Bagni di Lucca.

  11. Paul’s photos are breathtaking! I love the close-ups especially the perky little Robin and the solitary leaf on snow.

    • The photo of the robin is just perfect.

  12. lovely photographs

    • Paul takes beautiful photos.

  13. What a beautiful robin!
