2813 – Viaggi e Miraggi II

The former monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso is one of the most famous sights of Lago Maggiore. It has been built into a steep cliff face and the normal way to approach it was by boat. Today there is a lift down from the top of the cliff and that’s also the way we came.

The church is interesting, because due to the constraints of space it has a completely irregular floor plan. It was pretty dark inside, but that’s where the OM-D E-M1 shines like no other camera that I’ve had before. The Image of the Day was taken at half a second, handheld, at ISO 200.

The Song of the Day stays “Viaggi e Miraggi” by Francesco De Gregori. Hear it on YouTube.
