Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
Punta Carena is an area in Capri, Italy, that has one of the most stunning lighthouses plus cliffs I have ever seen. While I will show the lighthouse itself in another picture, the area around the lighthouse is just as beautiful. You have long paths leading to random places (or the beach, at least the one we followed) and you can get properly lost in nature there. Capri is small, so within a day you can really get around and the local bus service is great! They will bring you to all the touristic spots in no time and for very little money - but we have been warned that during the peak-season, you will be like sardines in a can with all the other tourists. I was there off-season, so we had the bus for ourselves, hehe.
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.
