Photo gallery – Cinque Terre sunset

Happy New Year to everyone. I’ve had a bit of a break from blogging but hope to be back with a vengeance in coming weeks.

Assessing my stats the other day I was surprised to see a single image of a Cinque Terre sunset was one of the most popular posts in December 2010. With that in mind I thought I’d welcome the new year with a series of shots of this sunset in Riomaggiore, the first of the Cinque Terre towns and a beautiful way to see the New Year in.

Sunset at Riomaggiore, one of the five fishing villages of the Cinque Terre. These fishing villages clutter the coves perched on ridges or hidden in ravines. They are full of narrow stone alleyways, Genovese style churches, small markets, fishing boats, gelatarias and tourists.

Hooking it around the globe

I was sorting out some photographs today and was struck with the number of images I have of people fishing.

Somehow the groups of fishermen and women I have photographed represent something of the relationships and communities I came across in these countries. There seemed to often be a real feeling of harmony, which obviously the setting reflects.

Here’s a few to view:
