Porto Venere and the Cinque Terre – Days 6, 7 and 8

We pulled into Porto Venere just in time for the golden hour of light (the last hour or two before sunset or sunrise is ideal for photography). The warmth of the light is wonderful.

The next morning we were scheduled to take a ferry to the towns of Cinque Terre. Unfortunately they were cancelled due to high winds. Not to be deterred, our bus took us to a stop above Manarolo. Mary and I had visited this area by ferry nine years ago so we were a bit skeptical that we would see as much, but in the end we had a whole new set of vistas and an expanded perspective on the area. We wandered around Manarolo and the paths above it. We had lunch here and then caught the train to Monterrosso al Mare. We are still in love with this iconic area. 

I had to capture a sunrise shot before we departed for Venice. Early morning photography is becoming de rigueur for me on these trips.
