Trieste Tranquility

Trieste Sunset

You don’t normally describe a city as tranquil. Especially and Italian city. Yet, the evening that I took this picture was exactly that. It was spent strolling along the waterfront at sunset. There was noise, there were lots of people about, but the mood was tranquil and relaxed. And I feel this picture captured it perfectly.

Whizzing By

After watching the sunset over the Bay of Trieste, I spent some time getting some night shots. Of course I didn’t have my tripod with me, so many came out blurry.

Evening on the Gulf of Trieste

What is it about water that is so relaxing? This photograph was taken during a walk along the promenade in Trieste, Italy in early June. It was crowded, yet peaceful. Most people were packing up after having spent the day on the beach, while some sat and enjoyed the last rays of the day. People were happy and relaxed. The sea has that effect. I feel this picture captures the peace I felt well.
