New Photo || Eye of the Storm – Vernazza

The beautiful little town of Vernazza is one of the many destinations we’ll be visiting on our Italy Photo Tour this May. It’s also one of the 5 villages that makes up the enchanting region of Liguria known as Le Cinque Terre.

On this particular evening we were able to capture the beginning of what turned out to be an incredibly powerful storm. In fact, the storm surge increased with such ferocity, that as we all settled in for dinner, the waves were nearly crashing over the top of the town! It turned out to be a spectacular display of the raw power of mother nature. It also made for some very interesting and lively dinner conversation, although, I’m pretty sure the good wine and excellent company played a role in that as well. 🙂

Traveling full time for the last 4 years, some of my very best memories and photographs have come from Italy and no matter where in the world I happen to be, Italy seems to live permanently in my heart. That’s why it makes me happy to know that I’ll be back there this May with my friend Ken Kaminesky, leading another group of photographers though some of the most spectacular destinations that Italy has to offer.
