Vertical lights of Camogli, a colorful labyrinth on North Italy shores.

Camogli (close to Genoa) is a tiny jewel on North Italy shores. Squeezed between sea and Apennines mountains, Camogli inhabitants had to develop their town vertically. Narrow streets and up to 5-floor houses build up a real labyrinth for sunlight.

In the evening, light still comes from atop or from the colorful reflections of the tiny harbor.

The last sun rays turn every smooth surface gold, both “veneziane” (wood lacked windows) and sea.

And when darkness comes down, warm lights still paint the narrow carrugi (“streets” in Genoa dialect).

All pictures shot with D800 plus 70-200 VRII in the tiny time between swimming and enjoying the delicious seafood in Ostaia da ö Sigu’. No fornografy on ARTBorghi (forno in Italian means “oven”, fornografy is about shooting pictures of food on plates),  so have a dinner there to experience the amazing taste of the Mediterranean sea.
