Fishing boat – Vernazza, Cinque Terra, Italy

The photographer: Steven B. Raffin of Granite Bay

Behind the lens: This is a photo of a classic fishing boat stored along the main street in Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy, situated along the shore of the Ligurian Sea. Vernazza is the fourth (south to north) of five small coastal fishing towns that were accessible only by sea in the past. There is now a walking path and a train connecting the villages to the town of La Spezia. We arrived by boat and returned by train.
