If you are ever in Amalfi or Atrani towns, it is well worth buying a bus ticket at the local tobacco shop and heading up by local bus to Ravello, a picturesque hill town with stunning views across the vineyards to the sea. This is the view from the bus stop. Lots of arts and crafts galleries, and museums are up there too as well as restaurants and souvenir stores. This is the view looking east towards Salerno. Taken near sunset so the colors are pastel, and the light is hazy. Next time I will try morning or early afternoon shots. I couldn't really find a high enough vantage point to get a decent sunset shot. The local white wine grown from these grapes is not bad at all.

Quel superbe point de vue sur la côte et quelle belle lumière sur les village en bordure de la mer. La légère brume apporte une belle ambiance à la composition.

A good overview of this attractive coastal town. I like the play of light across the foreground, which contrasts nicely with the hazy background.

A very fine plunging view of this superb coastal landscape. The mountains sweeping down to the sea balance the shot and the sunshine cast a beautiful light against the whole scenery. A nice place to visit.

Amazing view of Ravello. Well worth taking this bus and admire the view of the bay. Isn't italy the most beautiful country?
Have a nice weekend

Splendid panorama. I think Italy has the most beautiful coast line in Europe.
Enjoy a fine weekend.

superbe vue plongeante sur la côte quel découpage et iamge avec ce village en premier plans et ce ciel doux, port avec le petites taches blanches des bâteaux et la colline qui surplombe la mer splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Merveilleux paysage de rochers, des habitations si près de la mer, un fond brumeux que donne la chaleur et baigne le paysage, bon POV, belle réalisation

We get a little bit fog in background this gives a wonderful atmosphere.
But the village with church and tower is the most eye catcher on these nice picture.
The perfect choice for these nice picture.
I love these nice picture this cares for depth and perspective.
Colours and sharpness be pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

The downward point of view is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the mountain and of the village. The quality of the light is embellishing the colors. Have a nice day.

I stayed a week at Ravello, from there I visited Amalfi, Positano,Paestum (Greco-Roman ruins) and more
You take a well composed aerial view with excellent contrast between the green hill (vineyards) and blue-grey sea and sky
Of course all the capture is an example of well balanced one
Thanks for recommending the wine
In Winter was great to live up there, it has 2 villas with quite spectacular views , Rufolo and Cimbrone, so if you returned you will enjoy them

I think light mist is good for the mood. Good capture of this hillside village with great ocean view. Great pov and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
macjake (51476) 2013-11-26 23:02
its easy to see why you'd want to visit the high areas like this one.
as you mentioned, the skyline is hazy and kinda smokey, but look at the buildings and homes down below - they look great.
and of course the overall view with the ocean magical, we don't get to see views like this everyday.
