    In Porto Venere every year on August 17th there is a unique show in the world, the whole place is lit with candles to celebrate the cult of the "Madonna Bianca" in the Church of San Lorenzo. The first time I saw this show was in 2015 and for three years I planned to come back to take some pictures of the event during the blue hour, so as to have a strong contrast between the blue light of the landscape and that of the candles that light up Portovenere.

    I love how you planned this photo for three years — I love this driven purpose. I love how your use of long exposure to capture the motion of the boats. I appreciate you included detailed information in your caption explaining what I am looking at. Well done Marco.
