Guardando il mare Penso alle vacanze.

Gauardandolo Penso alle vacanze.

Not sure if this is correct then.

Lo guardando Penso alle vacanze. ( This one- is it acceptable too.

Hi sebongela, 

Thanks for this question!
  • ✔️ "Guardando il mare, penso alle vacanze."
  • ✔️ "Guardandolo, penso alle vacanze." ("mare" is implicit in this case)
  • ❌ "Lo guardando, penso alle vacanze." (this one is incorrect)

When you use the gerund, you always need to put the pronoun right at the end of the verb (suffix). Hence you need to use "guardandolo" and not "lo guardando".

Hope this helps :)
