Originally I know the Verzasca from my large format colleagues as a location for SW Fine Art Photography.
When studying and searching for routes in Google Maps (I have to admit, I sometimes do that along my morning coffee to cultivate my wanderlust a bit 😊 - formerly with atlases and road maps, today with the phone) I stumbled over this little place: Lavertezzo, a village at the Verzasca - and a little foraging revealed very quickly:
this something for me, I want to go there, too.
The Traveling Burnside Project was also a bit of a hitch to put that wish into action now - and so I found myself one morning in the small village of Lavertezzo to explore this beautiful river.
The first glance, however, was rather full of horror: everywhere I saw people with towels and picnic baskets! The river was literally besieged by bathing people, so apparently the Verzasca is not only a destination for photographers, but also for ordinary swimmers (something that always surprises me 😊)
