Clear day

The view from San Leonardo Hill

On a clear day like yesterday you can see the Friulana plain and the Alps
from the Karst highlands surrounding the city.

You can also, unfortunately, quite clearly see the plume of fumes rising up from the ghastly factory stuck in the middle of cultivated fields, right next to the motorway linking Trieste to Udine.

Ugh. Sorry to hear about the factory.

The view is still magnificent though. The huge, looming, snowy Alps is actually giving me butterflies in my tummy now. They're fantastic!

The smokestack actually adds an interesting visual element to the image but of course you are right, it's ghastly.
