Photographer's Note

The title: “Vulnetia” was the Latin name of Vernazza, so “Vulnetia nocturna” means: Vernazza at night”.
The photo is taken from the path which links Vernazza with the nearby town of Corniglia. We had walked in that path, high above the cliff, the day before in the morning, hoping to reach Corniglia. But the task proved to be superior to our endurance and after having done half the way we came back to Vernazza. Just in this point where the photo is taken we noticed a nice restaurant with a terrace from which one could see this magnificent panorama. We decided to climb back there the next evening to dine there with the benefit of this unique sight. The food was good and the price not too expensive compared to the other restaurants down below, and surprisingly we were alone in that terrace: all the tourists preferred to dine in the main square by the sea, probably because of the steep path one has to climb to reach this place. But if you are not afraid of that you should try a dinner there: you’ll not regret the fatigue of the path.

As I had no tripod I leaned the camera upon the small wall of the restaurant terrace. Some lights (like those of the tower down below were too strong and I could not avoid them turning out overexposed.
