L-A: Wet in Saturnia

Every once in a while I show you one of the major attractions around here, the wild and free Terme di Saturnia where you can get nicely wet at nearly 40 degrees C.

These photos are one year old, and looking at all these greens I’m pretty sure that May is the best time to visit, even though the air can still be quite chilly.

But that’s why the water is at lovely 37.5 Β°C (99.5 Β°F). Above the waterfall, where the stream is quite strong, it’s warmer than below where you can chill in naturally formed pools. The impression is that the nature has not been tempered with since the Etruscans. I always say my praise for that.

This was last May when Man in Black from the American desert was visiting and he wished to get wet, perfect for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge.
