Santa Margherita Ligure

I've been to Santa Margherita Ligure twice, in 2001 and 2002. It is an excellent base for exploring Cinque Terre and other villages and towns in the Ligurian coast. It has a pretty piazza overlooking the water and beautiful buildings decorated with gorgeous trompe l'oeil. This photo was taken at sunrise near the spot where the fishermen leave to get their daily catch under the watchful eye of the Madonna.

What a really beautiful photo, Maria. I haven't visited this part of Italy, and I'm becoming really intrigued by it.

Oh dear - I'm getting all nostalgic. I was supposed to be there two weeks ago. Oh well, God works in mysterious ways. And if a door shuts, another one opens. :)

Hi Maria, I don't know how I missed this post of yours. I found it on Girasoli's blog.

This is a gorgeous photo! Sometimes I think the best times of the day are the few momemts when the sun rises and the sun sets.
