There is a photo in the Travel section of today’s New York Times that is so spectacular I wanted to share it with you here. It accompanies Frank Bruni’s article called Bucking the Tide on the Tuscan Shore.

However, I suspect because it is so vast and sweeping that it takes up nearly all of page 9, I couldn’t find it anywhere in the Internet version of the article or the accompanying slide show. If that doesn’t make a case for the experience of reading a real paper-and-ink newspaper, I don’t know what does.

Suffice to say I can’t stop looking at it. Here’s what the caption says of Dave Yoder’s breathtaking photograph: The beach at Forte dei Marmi, overlooked by the Apuan Alps, whose veins of marble look like ski trails.

Take me away.
