Pic(k) of the week 23: The sun is setting over Riomagiorre – Cinque Terre
Today’s Pic(k) of the week is written from a comfortable passenger seat at 35000 feet, on a 6 hour flight from Milan to Dubai. Heading back from another great photo-adventure, it is the perfect time to reflect on the last 9 days of shooting two X-series Fujifilm cameras in Northwestern Italy.
The main objective of the trip was documenting the Cinque Terre National Park; an amazing part of the Italian Riviera consisting of 5 very scenic villages about 3 hours West of Milan. As I will dedicate an entire blog-post to this beautiful part of Italy early next week, I do feel the need to share of my best shots as this weeks Pic(k) of the week!
Next week I will give a complete overview of all of the Cinque Terre villages, but together with Manarola, Riomaggiore is clearly fighting to be the most photogenic of the 5!
After having climbed across some very slippery rocks for a better viewpoint, I eventually framed the image below, just as the sun had dipped below the horizon.
