Sicilia! 2

Posted by
L'explorateur (Vancouver, Canada) on 21 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the second image of the Sicilian series.

Erice castle. Erice is one of the most fascinating town I have ever seen, located on top of a mountain at around 750m above sea level. And looking down straight to the Meditteranean! Walking along its narrow streets it’s like going back to the Middle Age. More shots from tomorrow!

Questa è la seconda foto della serie sulla Sicilia.
Il Castello di Erice. Erice è una delle cittadine più affascinanti che abbia mai visitato. È situata in cima a una montagna, a 750m sul livello del mare, direttamente affacciata sul Mediterraneo! Camminare per le sue strette vie è come tornare indietro di 1000 anni. Altre foto da domani!

@CElliottUK: Hey Chris, I guess you'd prefer a more usual angle, like Franz :D Thanks for the visit!

@tataray: Bonjour Raymonde et merci beaucoup! Me too I like this place very much. A few years ago I walked down to those ruins. A bit dangerous, I'd say, but fascinating!

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

Erice IS a beautiful town !!

@Kenny: Hi Kenny, it is amazing. Up there on that "rock", looking down at the flat land and at the sea. So special! Thanks for the visit!

Franz from Baden, Austria

i loved erice as well, the town itself and the view from up there! i love the wonderfully subdued winter tones here and the many details, but honestly i don't really like the tilt! sorry! ;-((

@Franz: Hi Franz, thanks for stopping by. So nice that you've been there. Thanks a lot for your comment. It seems that the tilted image makes many people sick! :D

Loner from Wörgl, Austria

A little bit crooked – nevertheless, nicely!

@Loner: Thanks a lot! Yeah, it seems that the tilt in this image buys many people, but many others just get sick! AH AH!
