{10 Second Vacation} Ahhhh, the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is known for its beauty, with steep cliffs leading down to endless bays and beaches. Most people focus on the touristy northern town of Positano, but there are some real gems a bit farther south. Heading south from Positano, the Fiordo di Furore is a special place–a pocket-sized inlet with a dramatic arched bridge. Its beach is littered with smoothed-out pottery shards you can collect. Further down the road is the lively town of Amalfi itself. Away from Amalfi’s choked roads, you’ll reach Atrani, a sleepier and more quaint town that is one of my favorites. High on the hills above Atrani and Amalfi is Ravello, which is worth a trip for the views alone. Enjoy!¬†

not to sound completely ignorant, but where does the pottery come from?

You have certainly catpured a wealth of amazing textures, patterns and light/shadow images. The very essence of Italy and the Amalfi coast. Beautiful all of them.
