Trabocco at Dawn

The trabocco Pesce Palombo at dawn, Fossacesia, Costa dei trabocchi, Abruzzo, Italy.

Trabocco is a wooden fishing platform typical of Abruzzo region, Italy. There was a time that entire families lived of the catch of a Trabocco. Alas, nowadays fishing on a Trabocco is no longer profitable. So many of these Trabocco were converted into fish restaurants as the Trabocco Pesce Palombo in Fossacesia.

To take this photo I had to face a tough early rising. I arrived when it was still dark. With the first light the color of the sky and the sea began to change quickly with various shades of blue and orange. After placing the camera on the tripod I started shooting photos.I shoot this frame at 4:56 am, almost half an hour before the rising of the sun.

A tip for shooting at dawn: the night before prepare coffee thermos to bring along next morning.
