A Surreal Village

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Sue Black

When staying in the Cinque Terre region of Italy, the unique village of Riomaggiore fascinated me. It felt very "surreal" and quite frankly "unreal". I wanted to capture an ultra-wide angle photo of this scene. This brightly coloured picturesque village is built up the side of a mountain from the water's edge. There is so much to look at in the photo and closer attention to detail reveals a plethora of interesting tidbits.

Location: Riomaggiore, Italy.
