I just love the light, colours and textures of Mediterranean towns, as well as the glorious architectural mishmash of them…this one is Vernazza, in the Cinque Terre region of the Ligurian Coast in Italy.

    I can almost feel the sun on my face – love the colours and the perspective!

  • Thanks Enivea, much appreciated! In the reference photo this place is more spread out, but I stretched the perspective to give the impression the buildings were soaring up to the viewer…almost reaching for the sun
