Roadside to Caccamo, Sicily

By KingArthur
A couple of weeks ago I accompanied three other photographer friends of mine on a 5-day photography trip to nearby Sicily. We were based in a seaside town called Bagheria about 50 kilometres away from the capital Palermo. It turned out to be a great stay visiting wonderful, picturesque villages in the mountainous regions of the North Western part of the Island, and we loved it so much that we're already planning another trip there in a year's time.

This shot was taken on a lay-by on the road to Caccamo while stretching our legs breaking a 2-hour drive. The sea and hilly region of Bagheria in the distance, the favourable lighting and the wonderful cloud formation seemed to be crying out for a shot. Hope you find the composition to your liking, viewed large is always better.

Thank you all for your clicks and comments on my last upload "Dilapidated and Abandoned", all are highly valued and appreciated.

How. I would love to see this historic and interesting island one day Arthur , you have produced a fine landscape composition here . I have heard Sicily has a different and proud culture from the mainland - with a cuisine that is slightly different as well.
