Photographer's Note

Along the coast from Genoa lies a spectacular string of fishing villages known as the 'Cinque Terra'. A 10 mile walk links the villages which hug the cliff tops. Every available patch of land is used with houses almost literally built on top of each other.

The terraces seen in the background supply olives and grapes which are a great accompaniment for the locally caught fish.

The photo just seems to capture the essence of this bit of coast- unspolit, dramatic yet still functional fishing villages.
