Italy's Cinque Terre
The perfect moment approaches, that combination of the town lights and the rich colors from the setting sun. High on a path above the town, I am joined by a other photographers, hikers, newlyweds and vacationers all enjoying the view of a most improbable village in a truly extraordinary setting. The Town is Manarola and it is one the villages in Italy's Cinque Terre National Park.
Cinque Terre is a unique and romantic world. The name translates to “five lands”, and is named for the five unlikely villages built on unpractical and inaccessible cliffs along the Italian Riviera. Four of the towns are built into ravines with pastel building decorated with green shutters all leaning into each other. The streets are filled with artisan shops and charming restaurants serving seafood and caught the that morning. The relaxed tourists fill the streets and cafes and appear in good spirits. The absence of cars and the lack of national chains complete the illusion of a simpler time long past.
