Skies and reflections of skies in Italy



Richard Schear photos, March, 2013.
When we wanted to explore Italy's beautiful coastal area called Cinque Terre, we made the town of La Spezia our home base. We stayed in a homey little hotel near the waterfront, and enjoyed the delicacies from a bakery and two restaurants while we there. One morning, my husband got up early and managed to capture shots of the rising sun as it came up behind some naval vessels and some civilian boats.

Love that first shot. Getting up early is never a mistake for a photog. I hope to get to Italy one day, but there sure are a lot of must do home repairs before any pennies are going into that savings plan. Thanks for the mini tour.

One waterfowl in the middle of all of the big ships. Beautiful water. Coastal Italy must be beautiful. All I visited were Rome and Florence. genie
