The coastline around Napoli is fantastic. I'd spent the day driving around (well, being driven around, thanks Sara) looking for the best place to capture the sunset. We eventually went back to a part we'd been to previously that day, after crisscrossing the city all afternoon. I'd taken a good hundred or so photos of the sunset and was walking back to the car when I turned around and saw this tree on the cliff silhouetted against the almost completely set sun. For some reason the scene reminds me of Africa, not Italy. Perhaps it's the shape of the tree? What do you think?

(Thanks to Marco for providing the title of this photo)

Try it in the lightbox (Press L); it looks fantastic!
