B must be Bagno Vignoni…..

One of my favourite places in Italy, a tiny hamlet around a sulphur spring….. I came across it in a film by the late Andrei Tarkovsky.

My friend and I stayed one night in a wonderful small B&B, and the whole visit was so atmospheric. I was up early to see the steam coming off the sulphur bath in the early morning light, but sadly I didn’t really appreciate how the sun was rising to make the best of the short time I had there. But I always think I could have done better!

Blue hour

Looking the other way, with the steam caught in the sun

Morning has broken

I would love to go back again, now I realise how the light had worked there!





  1. Wonderful! 🙂 🙂 I’m going to enjoy this sequence, and a few gentle reminiscences, Sue. (and maybe a few violent ones 🙂 )

  2. Wonderful place and photo

  3. These are very lovely photos – your best shot or not. And many thanks for the Tarkovsky hint. Have found the film on YouTube – Nostalghia.

  4. That mist rising does make it look very atmospheric. Beautiful, Sue.

  5. That’s a lovely spot, Sue. Sadly, I have only ever been to Rome. So much more of Italy to see.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Beautiful. Love the steam in the sun shot.

  7. great photos , especially like the first two.

  8. What a beautiful, scenic place and perfectly framed!
