The World As We See It , or as we missed it … July 2012
Photographed from Castello Brown, high above Portofino, a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. The town is crowded round its small harbour and is closely associated with Paraggi Beach, which is a few minutes up the coast by road, or considerably more on foot up and down the hilly terrain.
The Portofino Promontory forms the northernmost coastal Protected Area in the Western Mediterranean Sea. The Park was established in 1935 and houses one of the largest floristic concentrations in the Mediterranean area, a considerable variety of birds and invertebrates, important architectural elements, and the best-known scenery in the world. The seabed preserves the whole range of interacting underwater life of the upper Tyrrhenian Sea.
