  1. Now that’s what I call a roof garden, Sue!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I can see teh trees are enjoying the view!

  3. It’s what all of us Lucca tourists go to see, Sue, and we’re curiously confused when having climbed to the top we find they are — truly — there, and not some optical illusion! Magical, like a image from a fairytale.

  7. Guinigi again 🙂 That is one of the loveliest, most original and likable natural tops I have ever seen. Excellent choice and capture for this theme. Thank you 🙂

  8. I hope they’re in pots!

  9. I like Pete’s comment!

  10. Ah, yes, I remember that. Another place we’ve both been, parallel travel partner 🙂

  11. Indeed it is, and what a beautiful composition too, adding to the sense of height.

    Woow that’s incredible!
    You never know what’s gonna be next in Italy. So many surprises around these old small cities 😉

  13. Hello Sue…nice Sunda shot BTW I am off to CO for the next 10 days and I may not be able to comment on BLOGs I follow…when I return, I’ll get caught up. I do have daily posts scheduled, so there will be something from me to view. Have fun!

  14. Love the geometry in this image… it really forces one to look up that tower.

  15. This photo is beautiful !

  16. Ah yes, Holm oaks! 🙂 Well familiar with those, Sue. But not in so lofty a location. Spectacular shot and it works well in black and white. Hoping I might just be able to squeeze Lucca into my Florence jaunt, but I want to do everywhere justice. We’ll see! 🙂

  17. I would love to sit by them. The view…

  18. what a great perspective and trees!!

  19. Wonderful. I like the way that the Torre Guinigi seems to rise like a flower stalk from the other buildings with the oaks on top as the flowers
