Writing with Light


Last week I posted the first in a series of images from Cinque Terre starting with a blue hour image of Manarola. You can see that post here. Today we head to Riomaggiore.

Riomaggiore is the first village one encounters when travelling west from La Spezia. Riomaggiore is easily accessible by train as are the other villages but it’s linked to its neighbour, Manarola by the Via Dell’Amore, or the Way of Love, which is a path overlooking the sea that runs for about 1 kilometre. This was our intended way to get to Riomaggiore but unfortunately it was closed for repairs when we were there.

    So colorful … the boats, too! How neat that it’s called the Way of Love.
    I’m very much enjoying this series, Edith.

  10. Villages like this continue to amaze me – the way the houses appear ‘stacked’ on the steep sides of this cove. And the colours are all so harmonious.
