On 25 October 2011, Vernazza was struck by torrential rains, massive flooding, and mudslides that left the town buried in over 4 metres of mud and debris, causing over 100 million euro worth of damage. The town was evacuated and remains in a continued state of emergency. Click here to read more about the disaster and to see images and videos. And please consider visiting Vernazza at some time in the future. They will surely appreciate your tourism dollars.

    • Thanks John! I have actually been thinking about framing the two of them together. The night one was especially challenging due to the killer mosquitoes that were either stocking up for winter or catching a buzz from the great Italian wine in my veins!

  8. I saw a picture of this location from a similar vantage in a travel brochure the other day, but yours is far superior to that one. Your composition and use of subtle foreground is fantastic.
