Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy-Overlook

Daily Photo:

I would have to say that Vernazza, Italy is probably on the top of the list for photographic vistas anywhere in the world. To climb up the steep cobblestone pathways to your own little spot, before the crowds show up at sunset, and to share that spot with a dozen other photographers is quite intoxicating. People around you from all parts of the world converging on this famous cliff-side town, all wanting the same thing..a moment frozen in time to hold onto for a lifetime. I happen to be standing next to a commissioned photographer from Japan who had a dream job. He travelled the world testing new cameras for Sony, Canon and Nikon and got paid for it. Who wouldn’t want to do that. This guy was pulling out cameras like a gunfighter pulling a pistol out of a holster. It was quite exciting to watch him juggle between shots knowing he only had a few minutes with the golden sunset.

Vernazza Vista

Daily Photo: 

In northern Italy near Genoa lies a rocky coast along the Ligurian Sea called Cinque Terre. Five cliff towns hover in pastel colors along it’s rocky shores, beckoning hikers and tourist from around the world.  A train connects each town making it easily accessible by most travellers. This area is a photographer’s heaven with ever-changing hues of light to enjoy that once in a lifetime shot. Sunsets are spectacular. Find yourself a vantage point and shoot away as the town of Vernazza unfolds it’s incredible vibrant color display.
