OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Abbey of San Fruttuoso is placed at the hearth of Portofino Natural Park. Here we are approaching it by swimming in San Fruttuoso bay.

    I love the top image, especially how the dome’s rigid structure contrasts with forest and the opaque foreground. If you look closely, it is as if two images were folded into one. Nice!

      Thanks Jim, this picture was shot while swimming towards the place. I was trying to have a half sub water half above water shot… without success 🙂 but I liked its point of view.
