Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Today’s shot is a view down over Vernazza, one of the five villages that make up Cinque Terre in northwestern-ish Italy. I’ve covered this ground before, so I won’t do that here. But, this is the town where Julie and I stayed when Trevor and Heather got married over there. This picture was taken along the trail between Vernazza (the 2nd of the 5) and Monterosso al Mare (the 1st). The little tiny beach was nice enough, and the water is *amazingly* clear. It looked like the boats were just floating in the air, suspended 10 or 20 feet or whatever over the sandy bottom. That’s the second revision for that sentence. The first revision said something like “…looked like the boats were just floating there.” which seems like a somewhat stupid thing to say.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tamron 28-300 mm lens. 1/125s, f/7.1, ISO 100. Focal length: 28mm.

    I haven’t had a chance to get to Cinque Terre, but it is high on my list of places to go. Italy makes for some great photo opportunities. The country side and villages provide a nice old world feel.
