Fotoeins Friday: Monterosso al Mare, Cinque Terre (5/5)

Part 5 of 5 in the Cinque Terre: Monterosso al Mare.

For an entire day, I traveled up and down Italy’s Ligurian Riviera on foot, and by train to explore the famous Cinque Terre region: Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, and Monterosso al Mare. UNESCO inscribed the Cinque Terre as World Heritage Site in 1997.

My day exploring all five towns in the Cinque Terre area draws to a close as the train pulls into Monterosso al Mare. It’s been a very warm Saturday afternoon, and I’m in need of some shade and a long cool drink. In my walk east along the shoreline into town, I pass by the Convento Frati Cappuccini (Convent of the Capuchin Friars) at the upper left.

I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with a Canon EOS450 and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/5.6, ISO200, 49mm focal length (78mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
