This is one of the rare "parking lots" on Amalfi Drive.
The scenic coast is more than beautiful, this isn't one of the shots that makes justice. It's only to show how you can park your car if you wish, par example, to make a picture!
"The narrow and twisting Amalfi Drive in Italy is arguably the world's most beautiful and thrilling sightseeing road. It stretches 50 kilometers (30 miles) between Sorrento city and Amalfi village (which gave the coast its name. The roadway has only occasional railings to keep your car from potentially plunging into craggy, breaker-washed sea boulders far below. "

Hi Iona. The concept of 'occasional railings' to park the cars is really amusing. Perhaps there are similar railings for the tourists to have a view of the sea. But the shot was nicely composed. Regards.

I have no idea where you took this from, but the result is outstanding!
Awesome situation depicted, great details and an attractive composition...
I like the way the frame is divided between sea and land!

il punto di vista dà la sensazione dello "sfondamento" della ringhiera. Ottima!

This is a wonderful view from the parking. What a dangerous place to park your car. I wouldnt risk my car at such a space but in Italy I guess people like taking risks. Well captured with a unique POV.

Cette photo est géniale, elle défit les lois de la logique. En plus, on se demande ou vont les personnes une fois garé...?
Très original !!

Very well captured shot of a very good perspective and great vertigo effect. The pov is perfect and the colours are natural and well saturated. Nice work!
Tfs and best regards.

Seeing this parking lot from your point of view, I wouldn't park my car there! The cars seem suspended over the sea. Great capture! It must be a spectacular route along the coast.

Deosebita poza!E un fel de conspiratie a masinilor care nu au vrut sa mearga mai departe si s-au oprit sa admire si ele atita frumusete?

Elle a le mérite d'être marrante celle-ci... J'aime bien cette agglutination qui donne vraiment l'impression que ce sont ces voitures qui de leur plein gré sont venues ainsi se garer... C'est tres bien vu, félicitations...

Superbe image qui montre la réalité des choses. Beaucoup auraient simplement fait une belle photo de paysage mais toi, tu as eu l'idée de regarder les choses d'une manière différente. Je pense que tu es une grande photographe.

Hi Ioana - first of all, I like the original idea, how you used this mundane situation to create such a nice shot... and you're right, now I remember those small, crowded parking lots in the Amalfi/Sorrento area... it's nice the cars have suitable colors, without any red, yellow or green one for example, they go really well with the pavement and sea... and the vertical format is very efficient and attractive... congratulations! Daniel
