I could spend hours wandering the streets of Capri and never tire of the stunning views, the houses draped with beautiful vines, the fanciful wrought iron gates and the endless colors. This past weekend, I noticed autumnal colors on the island, mostly in the form of one type of vine that was turning a brilliant shade of red. While Capri’s famous bougainvillea is still bright and beautiful, I pointed my camera instead to the colors you’ll only find on Capri this time of year. Enjoy!
Looking toward Capri Town … notice the cactus graffiti!

During the summer months you can hardly find a spot to lay a small towel here on Capri’s biggest beach right next to Marina Grande. This time of year there were only a few people walking along the water’s edge, and one brave local out for a chilly evening swim. Sunset comes early now, but the last rays of sun hitting the mountains on the island is certainly a beautiful farewell sight as you climb aboard the boat and head home.
