You can read about the Atlantic Reach project here. The proceeds are going to the Samaritans.
My contributions to the project are below.
I hadn’t planned to shoot a series of postcards 😩, but that’s pretty much how things turned out in the first days of my first visit ever to Cinque Terre and Portovenere.
But once the tourists and the heat have subsided, I will be back, and I will enjoy the cool and peaceful dawns, the sea breeze, and have time to seek out a few less clichéd and crowded corners of this beautiful part of Italy.
A word to photographers: go on your own, or with 1 or 2 like-minded spirits. It’s so easy to get around – just be prepared for a fair bit of walking up and down stairs and hillside paths 😉
… the Scottish seaside 😎
In the best possible company 😉
surrounded by welcoming signs 😳
Guarded by sentinels
and picnicking with the seagulls 😲
Some find it hot…
Others feel the chill
And some go paddling
Homeward bound at dusk
PS Shoulder out of action for another 6-9 months, making do with my phone.
