Portovenere-Byron's cave
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:32:33 AM »

....nothing special, only  ultra-wide captures of this scenario near La spezia (n/w Italy).
Thank you for attention and all the best,
Sandro

Good use of such a wide lens. It's hard to pick one over the others here ... but I guess I like the colored more.

I also like the color shots but the waves in the two B&W images are really like they try to grab the viewer (or photographer) and I like that feeling a lot.

 I'm with Francois on this one, the breaking waves do add appeal to the shot(s). At least to me they do :)

Sandro,
Ahh, the bay of poets! I have over this lifetime noted these locations as "bocas". Dicen que the distracted here are swept away. Near the equator and the more domestic locations I try to visit at "super" low tides the reward is other-worldly. Is this in proximity to you? I hope that is the case and you will continue to develop a friendship here and share it with us, not so fortunate.

Here, we lost a clammer at the "super low" at the height of a severe blizzard this past week. I am almost passionate about the leaves and sheaves of ice stacking themselves in our coves now, but have a new experience of what it must have been to have rested below them as searchers sought my body just footsteps away. I do not believe my first impression ever again will be the beauty, but the eerie tragedy just below.

I truly hope you will find the time to become one with this location and the possibility breathing here.
Lumine!

Too much kind, thank you.  I live near these locations (200 km. ca.), but I am nothing special as  a photographer of these (and all the other, of
course) situations.   So fascinating these waves and this bay, I tried only some simple captures of the entire scene, using this 10 mm. lens.
I am sure that there are equally fascinating (or more) locations near you....
All the best,
Sandro

P.S. In that zone (Liguria, Italy) I often go as photographer in the Genova monumental cemetery. Fantastic (no equal, I know Pere Lachaise, prague and other ones, but this one is IMHO more impressive and various) monumental scenes.
