Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun On Salerno, Italy

Sun On Salerno, Italy

This week’s challenge is all about optimism, so I thought I’d skip slightly ahead of my travel log and give you a preview of what’s coming next. This is the city of Salerno, which is part of Italy’s world-famous Amalfi Coast. On the morning I took this, the sky was dull and overcast; I was worried our tour to Pompeii might be canceled due to bad weather, and started planning accordingly. After a little while, however, the sun broke through the clouds and illuminated the city like a spotlight. It grew brighter as the clouds drifted slowly – but inevitably – down the coast. Not all problems can fade away like that, but a little patience goes a long way. A larger version is viewable here.

I spent last Saturday volunteering at a coastal cleanup in Capitola, California. It was my first time back there in over 20 years. That beach is always gorgeous, but looked especially awesome in the early, quiet morning. Larger version is viewable here.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sailing In An Aruban Sunset

I took this one evening at Eagle Beach, Aruba. The sunset was beautiful enough, but the silhouette of a sailboat made it even better.
