The first of my new photo's from my one week in the Mediterranean. This striking sunrise is taken in the harbour of Naples, Italy and is showing the sun starting to peek through these stormy clouds. The mountain in the background that looks like it is on fire is actually the great volcano of Mount Vesuvius. Enjoy, Herb
