[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Monterosso al Mare, Italy, is divided into two parts – the newer Fegina to the north, with its beach and railway station, and Monterosso Vecchio, old Monterosso, to the south. These two parts are separated by a rocky headland, on the point of which sits the medieval Torre Aurora or “Tower of the Dawn”.

This is the only survivor of the original 13 towers which surrounded Monterosso in the 16th century. To my disappointment you can’t go inside, but a walk around the headland will give you close up views, and also a wonderful vantage point for photos. The walk is paved and flat and will only take a few minutes.

PP work: HDR

ISO 200

Excellent photo, such a tower on the coast is mysterious and wakes our imagination, perfectly done

Hi Francis, what an excellent POV for this scene - gives a lot of details for the eyes ... Would the tower have seen a lot of those tourist boats in his time of use ....... I like the ancient meeting the modern world.
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards Monika
