Sunrise Amalfi Coast

With a boyfriend who works as an official tour guide for the region of Campania, our days often start early. Especially when his groups depart from Sorrento or Salerno over an hour away. The bright side is that I get the chance to watch the day begin, as the sun climbs up over the mountains across the Bay of Salerno. Yesterday morning, while I was still puttering around the kitchen making a cup of tea, I noticed the bedroom was lit with a bright orange glow that I hadn’t ever seen before. I grabbed my camera and opened the window to find this glorious sight. The vivid orange and the trees silhouetted by the intense darkness reminded me of images I’ve seen of sunrises on the Serengeti. A deep breath of cool, clear air. What a way to start the day … And the New Year!

Buon Anno & Happy New Year wishes to you!!
