Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
Bryce Canyon in Utah was one of the greatest places I have ever seen - which makes sense if you have never seen national parks like this at all. Over the last year, I think I posted a total of three absolutely mindblowing trees that stood at the cliff and overlooked the valley. This one is the fourth, and I believe the last one. Well, that means I need more trees, so I guess I need to book some flights...
I have seen many sunsets, some more crazy than others, and thought I would by now have at least a slight chance to predict how a sunset would look before it happens. Well, Positano in Italy had me for a surprise!
The clouds were grey, it was super windy and the waves rolled into the beach as if they were trying to get people to get the hell away. This was also the reason that the beach was nearly empty by the time it happened - within less than a minute, everything turned from grey to an unbelievably strong purple. I was so surprised that I did not even know what to do for a second - such unseen light and the whole area just for me! However, I knew that something that comes so fast will not last long, so I guessed I had about 5 min to go where I need to go and take the shot. And so I did.
After 5 min, the party was over - the sky returned to grey and it became dark as if nothing ever happened.
Such moments are exactly what drives me - the shivers, the running, the hoping... Wonderous times.
Positano is said to be one of the most pretty and picturesque places in Italy - and indeed, while the place is a dream of a town, I think each small village along the Amalfi coast has its own charm in a way. I went to Positano off-season (like I usually do) and there were no tourists - except maybe 40 or so Chinese tourists that roamed the streets. These were also the guys that left the writing in the sand, hehe. Do you know what it says?
