Alba da Albergo California - Positano
"Sunrise from Hotel California - Positano"...
After a solemn sunrise morning where I essentially had Positano all to myself and before my strenuous journey down and back up the mountainside, I found my perfect vantage point upon the veranda of my favorite hotel, Albergo California, where I spent photographing the sunset on the first evening in Positano. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed the orange glow of the sunrise in one of the hotel’s windows and captured this reflective image. There was only one occasion that I was really able to pre-plan taking photos at sunrise and that was during the last day of three in Positano. It takes much planning, logistics, and familiarity to figure the best locations and the proper angles and positions of the sun. My third morning was ideal and fortuitous as it began raining about 10:00 am which gave me perfect clouds for sunrise, finally ending with a very cold wind just in time for sunset. This image is one of the rare photos of a slumbering Positano in the dewing morning around 6:45 am at the end of May….the beginning of peak tourist season. By 8:00 am, this tiny seaside village is bustling with tourists and shop owners, and restaurateurs trying to satisfy every need. All in all, Positano was by far the plushest of all the locations I visited in Italy, and I was blessed to witness everything in full bloom.
