CBBH Photo Challenge: BLUE

There is no better time to remember the blue skies than on the first day of November with the rain pouring heavily outside. Later this month I am going to Rome with a hope of getting some more of Italian sunshine… till then let’s enjoy some snaps of Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi and Capri.

I give you the best of Italy, with a song interpreted by grande Pavarotti.


This is my response to CBBH challenge. While we are in Italy, let me introduce you to two outstanding Italian photographers I have discovered on WP: Ā Alessandro Ciapanna and Ā Andrea Danani. Wishing you all more sunny days.

  1. Lovely photos to brighten any dull, rainy day, Paula. I love Italy, especially the Amalfi coast area. It’s a few years since I was at Pompeii and Capri – I remember we stayed in Sorrento.

    Thanks for the introduction to the two Italian photographers – excellent!


    • šŸ™‚ I was in Sorrento last December :). We were so lucky with the weather. I hope to have it dry and sunny for my trip to Rome too. Thank you Marianne.


  2. Awwww beautiful and sunny! Lovely Paula! šŸ™‚
    Pavarotti is a bit heavy for me, i like Domenico Modugno better! By the way, Volare fits perfectly your shots! Not only cause they are blue, but cause they are so serene, it’s like flying around those places! (obviously i am inspired tonight! šŸ˜› )


  3. Definitely you love Italy,Paula! I’ve been quite busy these last few days, but I followed your blog and can’t but appreciate your work.


    • Takk šŸ™‚ I was so lucky, so incredibly lucky and it was the day after my Vesuvio wine adventure :O… the views cured it all šŸ˜‰


    • šŸ™‚ I appreciate it, Bashar… it was cool to see this huge cloud just above the Vesuvius volcano ;). I also climbed to the top of the volcano, but the pics I took there suck šŸ˜€


  4. Beautiful blue!! I won’t say anything but to agree with what you said about Pavarotti, Paula. šŸ˜€ Have to see Pavarotti next time. Like Marianne, we stayed in we stayed in Sorrento.


    • Aw, thank you Jo.. I hope to have it nice and dry and inspiring… I am not good at warding tourists off my frames šŸ˜‰


  5. Did Pavarotti ever sing the blues..? ‘big smile’

    Wonderful shots – I like most the mountain and the beautiful cloud above it with the sea in front and the sky as backup – I’m drawn by heights and water… ‘smile’


    • Not that I know of……
      This mountain is VESUVIUS … a volcano šŸ˜€ and I climbed it in ice and cold :O. *smile*


      • I’ve never seen Vesuvius from the seaside only been there from the land side – volcanoes are interesting – one of the reasons that I like to go to Iceland too, which is a “dramatically” island – but the italian Vesuvius, Etna, Stromboli is also very exciting – Stromboli is a bit half dangerous, “a real sicilian “. ‘big big smile’


        • I would like to go to Iceland soon … I am thinking of some time in summer šŸ™‚ And yes Sicily is in my short-term plans too :D. You should see Vesuvius from the sea … It is majestic!


  6. A beautiful series of blue! Though for reasons I can’t put my finger on, my favorite is the one with the trees, the one with the least blue. I’m an odd duck aren’t I? šŸ˜‰


  7. Delicate picture and thoughts.Best wishes.jalal Michael


    • Gracias Pablo šŸ™‚ Que distraida soy por no responder antes a este comentario y buenos deseos šŸ™‚ Gracias, me fue muy bien, pero ya lo sabes šŸ˜€
