  Beautiful sky colors in afternoon from my terrace
by davequ

I know this sounds a bit off, but the first thing I noticed when I got a look at a large panorama in the Cinque Terre, was the shade of blue that was the color of the sky.
I don't know why or have a decent explanation, and worst of all, didn't have decent enough or high-resolution enough camera equipment to capture it correctly, but the color blue of the sky there above the Ligurian sea was like no other blue I have ever seen before.

I'll bet painters of landscapes go nuts over the colors there.
I took 2 ridiculous shots of the sky alone with clouds trying to capture it with the 2Mb digital camera I had, but I can't do it justice.

You'll just have to go there to see it for yourself.

Address: terrace, Riomaggiore
