Returning to travel archives, today we are dropping in to Bagno Vignoni, a tiny hamlet in Tuscany with a sulphur bath around a sulphur spring in the main square. Early in the morning in cold weather you can see the steam rising up off the water:

Was a bath good?
No, it’s not used now! But understand there is an indoor bath in the area
I love that effect. It was the same in the Azores at one of the hotels we stayed at. My luxury treat 🙂 🙂
Sounds good, Jo!
We could do with one of those. Right here. Right now.
ooh what a brilliant shot – could you go in?
See my response to Brian, Becky
I took that image around 7am to get the vapour rising
Did it smell of sulphur, I wonder?
That is usually very unpleasant.
Best wishes, Pete.
Just a faint suggestion
Deliberately so, Jude!
I wouldn’t expect any less from you Sue 😉
Looks inviting. It’s somewhere I don’t know but I’ll make a point of visiting next time I’m in Tuscany.
I came across it through Andrew Tarkovsky’s film Nostalghia (see http://www.travelingintuscany.com/engels/film/nostalghia.htm) and was enchanted…
That’s a great capture, Sue, and steaming in some hot water sounds good right about now…
But that sulphur bath is no longer used….
We’ll just imagine another one…. 🙂
Steam really does rise up. Wonderful photo for today 😀
That’s a gorgeous shot, Sue.
