Trieste is a gorgeous seaside city, miles from Italy’s border with Slovenia in the forgotten northeast portion of the country that faces west over the Adriatic Sea. Trieste is capital of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy.
These photos were taken as the sun was going down over the Gulf of Trieste, a harbored area off the Adriatic. The calm waters really set off the fading, subdued colors of the sky.
