Sundown moment at Framura

Follow me on 500px I Facebook I Instagram I Twitter


Framura, Ligurian east coast. This amazing place is at a short distance from the famous Cinque Terre and few kilometres from the wonderful town of Portofino, east of Deiva Marina and west of Bonassola. There is a prehistoric typical settlement of the area called "castellaro” in italian language, five hamlets dominating a coast of vertical rocks, holm-oaks, pinewoods and vineyards, old marble quarries, cliffs, reefs and small pebbly beaches. The originality of the town consists in its characteristic geographical arrangement: in fact Framura is the collective noun of 5 small hamlets spreading out from the sea to the hinterland and connecteed by a steep staircase in which the Municipality is composed.


I was here with my closest friends. We were spending a beautiful sunny spring weekend there, in the apartment of one of them. The balcony overlooking the sea and during the moment of sundown could enjoy the reflection of the sun on the sea. I thought to choose the lowest ISO value for to capture those wonderful reflections. Then I set 100 ISO with a bright diaphragm aperture and the exposure time was long enough to have a picture not so underexposed.
