Will the real Positano please stand up! Recently, I mistakenly uploaded a shot of Amalfi town from the tour boat to Isle of Capri. This is the real deal. Positano is equally stunning and if I had had more time on my whistle stop tour of Europe I most certainly would have spent several days here.

The distance between the sea and the summit of the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the boat and of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Cette vielle est dans mon to do list. J'aime ces maisons multicolores qui s'accrochent à la montagne. Le point de vue de la mer est excellent. L'ensemble est très net et a une belle profondeur.

Une belle vue de bord de mer avec toutes ces maisons colorées accrochées à la colline.
Amitiés et bonne soirée.

Jolie vue de Positano remarquablement éclairée. Effectivement, on passerait volontiers quelques jours à contempler la mer dans ces immeuble accrochés à la colline.

Spectacular place, Italy has a lot of jewelries along the huge coastline. Fine summer colors, well taken.
Enjoy a good day ahead.

your tour around Europe was certainly a don't blink or you will miss it trip, but it has yielded some lovely strong images. This is a fine example with so much to look at and all captured beautifully. Looks amazing!

Your picture is very high quality and sharpness.
We get a lovely view about the area with a village on the slope of the mountain.
Nice foreground with the small cruise boat.
Excellent captured, nice composed picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Well dear Chris
Consider this a recon mission. You can always go back! I truly hope you do, Positano is a jewel. And just above it, the towns of Nocelle and Montepertosa up in the hills are the best kept secret in Campania.
You did so well with the colours here despite the harsh sun. And considering that the boat was no doubt bobbing around on the sea, the image sharpness is even more impressive. And what a unique way to see this town and get to all it's little nooks and crannies. Amanda TAbberer recently put out a book called My Amalfi Coast which among her short stories and descriptions, some beautiful photos by Carla Coulson are the highlight. Anyway, she talks about accessing the secluded beaches and restaurants in Positano by boat - and your photo made me think of that.
Thanks for sharing, enjoy your day

Hi Chris, lovely sea view taken from this beautiful town perched on the mountain with the beautiful boats in the foreground, well composed and captured with a great pov, in this very good and nice photo. An interesting image of a nice place, with good sharpness, nice color and light. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

la tua Mikonos di oggi è bellissima, ma io da italiano mi soffermo su questa Positano incantata ripresa con una brillantezza ed una nitridezza insuperabile.
Il bianco delle case e quello delle barche risaltano in maniera eccellente nella bella composizione e si inseriscono in maniera perfetta in quel meraviglioso fondale che la natura ha fornito alla cittadina, sia che esso sia costituito da mare, rocce o un cielo ricco di un bellissimo azzurro.
Complimenti per queste belle foto della penisola sorrentina: sono una più bella dell'altra.
Ciao e buona serata

Ah, enfes bir manzara! I love the layering in this photo: The sea, the layers of buildings, then the bare mountains and then the sky - starting and ending with blue. Excellent, TFS!
PS. I trust everything is in order with your residence. If I may ask, what brings you to Turkey?

Dear Chris, this is a postcard of Italy, high quality of image, nice view of the jetty and mini cruise boats, I like the houses on the rocky cliffs, all the best, have a good sunday

Good morning Chris,
Fabulous sight and marvelous bright daylight culminate to a wonderful scenery over the town built on a rock "falling" to sea.
Excelent clear details, and a fine view of the houses, hotels, seashore and waterfront promenade.
