Photographer's Note

This tiny hamlet sits about 385 meters above sea level, and looks down over the villages of the Cinque Terre; indeed it is located within the National Park of Cinque Terre and is part of the village of Vernazza. It is best known for its church, called the Santuario di Nostra Signora delle Grazie (Shrine of Our Lady of Grace), part of a pilgrimage trail. This photograph was made from the village of Corniglia. Looking inland, we saw this frightening cloudscape approaching. Turning round and looking seawards, we had blue sky and bright sun. So though I took a quick snap of the storm we spent most of the time looking out to sea!
