Cinque Terre – Vernazza

Vernazza

OK, last one of Vernazza… Looking back as we were hiking out of town.  I’m not sure why I have a disproportionate number of pictures from Vernazza – must have been the most picturesque town of the five.

Merry Christmas!

A shot from on the brake wall from the previous picture.  You can’t really make out a trail thanks to the vegetation, but the trail comes in from the upper left here.

Apparently I tagged a bunch of pictures form Cinque Terre for posting, but never post them… so we’re going to have a few more of those to round out the year.

This is another of Vernazza from above as we were coming down into the town.

* I’m pretty sure I deleted two of the three shots that went into the HDR composition, which makes me feel dumb.  The one I have was shot at 1/80 sec, but I’m not sure if it was the mid or the under exposure.

Toward the end of the first hike, we descended into the town of Vernazza allowing the vantage point for this picture.  Vernazza is the second town in Cinque Terre (when heading South).

I have probably a dozen pictures from the five towns that I really like.  I think that the colors really came out well.  I think this was mainly thanks to the Italians of Cinque Terre and their penchant for richly colored buildings and a leaning toward the red end of the spectrum, providing nice contrast with the green-blue of the sea.  The overcast day helped out too, I’m sure, keeping the sun from washing out the colors.

In reality, yesterday’s picture was just to set the stage for this one as I think it is one of my favorites from the day.
