Snow and Sea

It snowed more then in 1985 (the last real snowfall) and more then anyone can ever remember.  The whole town is blanketed by a few inches of soft white snow, and the terraced vineyards built into the hills surrounding the Cinque Terre are incredibly dramatic laced with snow, like frosting on a cake.  The white snow brings out the deep greens of the mountains, and the vivid, shocking blues of the sea.

Even for a girl who's used to snow, it still takes my breath away.

  4. Thanks ladies! It's not a hard subject to photograph. It's probably harder to take a BAD picture, haha.
