This morning I woke up, wide awake, at 12:00 AM. I stayed up until 4:45 AM when I realized that the rain had stopped for the moment, after constant rain for several days. I was so excited that I checked to see if there was a way to Cinque Terra that time of day. A train was scheduled to leave La Spezia at 5:15 AM. I decided I would take a chance at going and hoped to catch a break in the rain. Well, after a broken train, an Italian man who spoke no English helping me out, and about an hour and a half standing on top of the cliff in the drizzle, I got a few shots. I had to constantly wipe the lens and try to protect it from rain and wind between shots. The fog and waves made for an amazing couple of hours on top of the cliff overlooking Manarola! I'm grateful for this perfect opportunity, as I thought my trip to Cinque Terre was going to be a weather bust!
