Sassi di Matera
So sometimes you spend hours scouting the perfect location and then wait for the perfect lighting to take that one picture the way you want to. Or sometimes you just walk out of your room after you check-in to your hotel and the scene presents itself :)
I would take this any day and hope luck smiles more often. Matera was undoubtedly the highlight of our Italian trip and it so happened that the best lighting was in the first 20 minutes of when we reached. There was a thunderstorm and this was just a few minutes after it partially cleared. Amazing place with an amazing history. And I have to thank the Silician Housewife for recommending this absolutely gorgeous place !
