The story behind the image

On our long trip through Italy in 2000 we drove from Tuscany on the countryside towards south. Effectively, the beach of Sabaudia was the first beach we saw after we had left Munich. And it was so beautiful that we wanted to stay close and stayed for two nights at a camp site (Camping Sabaudia back then.) Just the Lungomare, a straight street, and the dunes separated the camp site from the beach, and we had a wonderful time. At the beach, there were multiple restaurants serving delicious sea food!

I took this photo in the morning of the day we continued our trip to Sorrento. I love the long shadows of the morning sun, the clear blue sky, and the massive maves that look so tiny when seen from the distance.
