One of my photos appeared on Daily Mail and Daily Mirror on 11st and 12nd February 2013. The online article on Daily Mail. Genova, Liguria, Italy. It was a sunny day around the city of Genoa. The bad weather had preferred to remain beyond the borders. I decided to go to the Monument of Quarto dei Mille for taking some photo, from that place I could enjoy the sunset in its majestic beauty. It was about 5:00 pm when the sun began to set towards the west, the sunrays were very direct and there was an intense sunlight, it was not the right time to photograph. But the sky darkened suddenly, clouds coming from the south-east headed toward the coast, the weather changed.

From an immense bank of clouds was born a thin waterspout, until it became something powerful. Everything was changing in two minutes, crazy. The waterspout became increasingly large and the power of the wind was starting to feel even on the beach. I positioned the tripod on the rocks, something unique and unrepeatable was happening before my eyes. After a while the darkness would have fallen on the coast of Genoa. The clouds had brought along a special power supply, a lightning storm on the horizon became like the cherry on the cake. I would just point and shoot. Everything was so perfect, just so perfect.
