Mt. Erice, Sicily
I love this photo for a number of reasons.
I believe the composition itself really encompasses that curious feeling of awe that comes over most tourists when visiting a new place for the first time – wanting to explore and capture every beautiful view. Also, a feeling of curiosity comes over me when I look at this picture, wondering what exactly they are all enthralled by below.
Besides making me curious, I just feel that this is a great photograph. The sun, and shadows cast by it’s light, are beautiful in their playful balance, and the shades of blue and white continuous through every bit of the image give it an overall peaceful vibe. I feel relaxed when I look at this picture, as I do every time I visit Sicily.
