I love photographing the vibrant colors of spring on the Amalfi Coast. They change from day to day depending on the weather and what plants are blooming. Recently it seems that Atrani has been the subject of my photos more often than not. I just had to share them for all the readers with happy memories or a special connection to this beautiful village. It certainly is photogenic!

Enjoying the Amalfi Coast in the Springtime

A quiet May morning on the beach in Atrani

The sea turns strange colors after a storm, almost the same turquoise and green on the small wooden boat I caught being rowed toward the shore in Atrani. I wondered where these two had been that morning.

There are lamps along the walkway overlooking the beach in Atrani. Each one has three lights supported by an ornate design. I like the way they look with their twists and turns and curves standing out starkly against the blue sky and the sea beyond. It’s almost strange to think that soon this beach will be covered with blue and white striped beach umbrellas and sun beds all lined up. But that’s just as much its identity as the smooth black sand dotted with white stones is during the winter months.

Another sunny day after storms, I spotted a plant covered with tiny yellow flowers, and the colors stood out so beautifully with the bright turquoise sea.

The shape of the yellowing flowering plant, the cacti poking out and that intense blue were so irresistible that I had to stop and take a few shots.

Just beyond I spotted a fig tree clinging for its life to the cliff edge below the road. It must be thriving on the views, I thought, because there wasn’t much else! Looking close you can see how big the figs have already grown. It’s not a bad view after all.

The seasons are changing and I know the warm weather will be here very soon. Summer brings many good things with it, but I’m trying to hold on to the colors, scents and beauty of these vibrant spring days for as along as I can!
