Three Bridges

Windsurf Livorno, Tre PontiWe are still at the “Tre Ponti” (Three Bridges) but this time all the pictures are from Trillian. I'm sorry that I neglected them and I hope you would not find them repetitive.Windsurf Livorno, Tre PontiThis is the base of the surfers, on the south side of the cove, most of these pictures are taken from the terrace upstairs.Windsurf Livorno, Tre PontiIt is earlier than in my photos and this surfer is going solo.Windsurf Livorno, Tre PontiOthers surfers keep coming and checking their gear.

Nice job, Trillian! I like the first, third, and last especially because of the ships and the nice capture of the waves. The water is so compelling, and yet I think I'm glad to be dry right now! It's such a treat to be able to see this.

These are great shots!

Crazy swimmer in the water with those rocks and big waves!
I love the windsurfer shots paired with the ship rocking on the sea as well. The first shot today is very spectacular. I've always wondered why, when you are on shore, the sea looks higher than the land?
Thanks for the great views and action shots!

Kudos to you, Trillian! And not repetitive at all...you have given us a different, up-close look at these people who dare to get out in that water on a little board with a sheet on a stick!

That last photo is incredible. The person clinging to the railing reminds me of how nutty some people are!

Julie said...

I would use a word other than "daring" to describe that clinger!

Wonderful action shots, VP. It has been a good week for that.

Love it.

Tash said...

Very cool - Trillian has a different perspective. Amazing shot of the waves pounding the shore.

Nothing could have persuaded me to take on those waves. No way. But I love the images you've posted, Trillian, and I especially appreciate seeing the balcony from which most of the shots were taken.

Beautiful shots. I don't find it repetitive at all. Like Brattcat, I wouldn't be dare go out in waves like those.

James said...

The pictures are great. It looks windy there.

This was an amazing series of photos. I can almost eel the wind and the waves.

Stine in Ontario said...

I guess the water must be a lot warmer where you are than it is here. :)

Kaori said...

I can't seem to find the bather...has he drowned?

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Some really beautiful and fantastic shots !! Great post.

joo said...

They are beautiful as well, I like especially the last one with the crashing waves!

Per Stromsjo said...

If there's to be any surfing around here it'd better be ice surfing. That is a spectacular activity which I'll gladly leave to others.

Fantastic action photos Trillian, the last one is a work of art!

Cezar and Léia said...

She is very talented with photography, all pictures are great!
The first one shows the power of the waves, fantastic shot!

@ Kaori - Enlarge the picture and follow the pole on the right to its base: there is the bather!

Hilda said...

I thought the surfers were crazy but that bather is even worse, I think. That last photo is also my favorite, but not because of the bather. Love the power of the waves against the rocks.

Halcyon said...

They must be hearty folk to get in the water. I am cold just looking at them!

B SQUARED said...

They certainly are brave. Crazy but brave.

Dina said...

Exciting photos. But I'm just glad that I am not the mother of any of those surfers.

Splendidi scatti, un mare tremendo e l'ultima foto è davvero fantastica!
Thanks!

White Oleander said...

Isn't it cold over there?

Wolynski said...

A very daring bather, indeed. Great shots.

Andreea said...

I love these, they are beautiful shots, filled with action and drama

Rough sea! Just look at the colour on the first pic!
