I made this view on Amalfi picture wandering from Amalfi to Ravello. A very beautiful path.
Amalfi is a town and commune in the province of Salerno, in the region of Campania, Italy, on the Gulf of Salerno, 24 miles southeast of Naples. It lies at the mouth of a deep ravine, at the foot of Monte Cerreto (1,315 meters, 4,314 feet), surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. The town of
Amalfi was the capital of The Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Amalfi was a popular holiday destination for the British upper class and aristocracy.

A dizzying point of view for this fascinating shot. I like the positioning of the slightly curving shoreline and the division between land and sea. So much to take in, yet the composition is not over busy. It is perhaps not quite so sharp as it might be but that does not spoil my enjoyment of the shot.
