Fotoeins Friday: Corniglia, Cinque Terre (2/5)

Part 2 of 5 in the Cinque Terre: Corniglia.

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.

Corniglia is a small quiet village perched on top of a small rocky promontory some 100 meters (330 feet) above sea level, which might look daunting at first glance after disembarking the train at the sea-level station. Any physical exertion on this hot early-summer day in the Mediterranean is worth it.

I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with a Canon EOS450 and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/4.5, ISO200, 28mm focal length (45mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-d9D.

Fotoeins Friday: Chores in Corniglia (Cinque Terre)

Visitors flock to Italy’s Ligurian Riviera on foot, by car, and by train. There are elements of romance about the sounds of the sea, the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, and the scent of salt in the on-shore breeze. But people also live here, obviously and for multiple generations.

In the famous Cinque Terre region, Corniglia is a small quiet village sitting on a small rocky headland some 100 meters (330 feet) above sea level. There’s yet another hint to romance, but the daily grind might appear green on the other side of the street. Or for that matter, on the other side of the world. The Cinque Terre has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.


I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with the Canon EOS450, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/500 sec, f/4.5, ISO640, 33mm focal length (53mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9ju.
