If you’ve been following this blog recently, then you’re aware that I just spent two weeks in the Valle Salus (Healthy Valley) known as Terme di Comano, up in the Trentino Alto Adige region of northern Italy, undergoing medically prescribed water therapy at the Grand Hotel Terme to treat a skin disorder that’s been nagging me for quite a while.
As I noted in an earlier post, the magical mountain spring water already is having a positive effect.
In between my two-a-day thermal baths and the 4-5 glasses of the H2O that I drank daily, I was out and about with my cameras capturing some of the picture-postcard perfect scenes that unfolded not too far from my retreat.
All together, I shot 1,615 frames on two DSLRs and an iPhone 5 (gotta love the panorama feature), and incorporated quite a few of those shots in 11 Under Doctor’s Orders photo essays that I published about my stay and visits around le Giudicarie.
If you missed viewing any of these posts, you’re just a click away: Terme di Comano, Lago di Molveno, Eat-Drink-Soak, Deggia, Rango, Fiume Sarca, Balbido, Canale di Tenno, Fiavè, Azienda Agricola Fratelli Pisoni, and The Good Guys in White Hats.
During these photo shoots, I went back into time to almost 6,000 years ago, documented Marian apparitions, was eye-to-eye with a llama (he/she didn’t spit), walked the cobble of medieval villages and hamlets, saw John Lithgow’s Italian look-alike, met some of the friendliest people on the planet, and, of course, ate and drank incredible regional foods and wines.
Look, I’m terribly sorry that I had to put you through virtual torture during the Under Doctor’s Orders series of posts. You know, looking at mouth-watering dishes that you couldn’t savor and staring at spectacular sights that I photographed that you couldn’t experience.
Mea culpa, but I was just following my doctor’s orders.
