Riomaggiore is a village and comune in the province of La Spezia, situated in a small valley in the Liguria region of Italy. It is the first of the Cinque Terre one meets when travelling north from La Spezia.

The village, dating from the early thirteenth century, is known for its historic character and its wine, produced by the town's vineyards. Riomaggiore is in the Riviera di Levante region and has shoreline on the Mediterranean's Gulf of Genoa, with a small beach and a wharf framed by tower houses.
Riomaggiore is the most southern village of the five Cinque Terre, all connected by trail. The water and mountainside have been declared national parks.
Riomaggiore inspired paintings by Telemaco Signorini (1835-1901), one of the artists of the Macchiaioli group.

Hi Francis.

I have a very similar image of Possitano, their cliff faces holding up these painted homes. The 'V' shape the valley forms to create the village is so striking, the colours are well saturated and joyous. tfs

stv ;o))

Awesome place. and to see it from the sea is really wonderful

Was this taken from a boat? What a view!! It looks as though the village is tumbling down the hills. Love the colorful buildings and the interesting architecture. It must be equally interesting to see the inside of the village! A nicely composed shot Francis.

Hello Francis, the perfect PoV looking from the sea towards this very colourful village.
I find it hard to imagine just how they built all these houses so close together.
You have managed a great DoF, everything is so clear.
I like the sea splashing onto the rocks, was your boat rocking about as you took this shot?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Ciao Francis, fantastic view of place, beautiful composition, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Beautiful capture of this seaside village. I can hear the roar of the waves crashing into those rocks, that sound would put me to sleep at night. Good lighting even with the dark clouds and good dof with nice details. Love the colors of those buildings. Well done, tfs.

Beautiful amphitheater view of this romantic Italian village, excellent light and sharpness

A breathtaking scene captured with superb details and contrasts, Francis!

The light and exposure are well handled, and colors are original.
Good POv and well kept DOF when looking over the sea.
The waves striking the shore add action and drama into the scene.
Well seen!

Kind regards,

Another place I would like to be.
All these colorful houses clinging to the rocks.

Well done
Best regards Mr.Francis

Bonjour Francis
I like these small villages embedded in the hills in WN Italia.I saw several from the road but the POV from the sea is even better
the HDR enhances here the colours without excess, it is not always the case, imo
good week-end
