Cinque Terre Coastline on a Dark and Cloudy Day (Italy)

Here’s a photo taken as we walked along the shoreline of the Cinque Terre village of Monterosso al Mare on a very cloudy, dark, and windy day.  The colors on shore were very muted under this gray sky, so I decided to desaturate them completely in Lightroom 3, leaving only the Italian flag/pole and sea in color.

At lower left you can see pedestrians with umbrellas walking along the path that heads inland a bit and eventually leads to Vernazza, the next village over.  If I recall correctly, that trail has some steep up/down segments that would not be much fun on a wet day.

At least three of the other Cinque Terre villages are partly visible in the background, though they are pretty socked in by the low clouds here.
