meditations: cinque terre

The Cinque Terre in Italy, simply translated means Five Lands; clusters of pastel Medieval buildings hanging from the Riviera cliffs. Each village rises above the Mediterranean Sea piercing the coastal clouds, with connecting pathways winding along this secluded craggy earth. Using images from my travels through this land, each village has been portrayed with both the structures carved into the towering hills, and the footpaths that make them one.

"Explosions of Mediterranean brightness hint at the wonders to come." -Rick Steves
