I was fortunate enough to capture this final photo before the last train of the night departed the small seaward town of Manarola, (Cinque Terra) Italy. I ended up running up a hill through town, tripod in hand, camera swinging at my side, barely in time to catch the departing train. Sure beat hiking 5 km in the night back to my place of stay.
