Monterosso al Mare Beach Umbrellas (Cinque Terre, Italy)

Of the five villages along Italy’s Cinque Terre coastline, only Monterosso al Mare has a really significant beach area.  It’s relatively flat and semi-sandy along the waterfront, making it a popular destination for travelers interested in sunbathing and swimming.

This shot captures part of that scene.  I liked the long row of rental beach umbrellas and decided to shoot it as a vertical composition with the camera angled such that the umbrellas ran along a diagonal as seen here.
