Castellammare

From the road going down to the little sea town of Castellamare del Golfo, in Sicily, you can enjoy a very nice view of the bay.
If you add the morning light and the cannoli and coffee breakfast waiting for you at the end of the road... you cannot help but thinking that the day is gonna be great!

Etna Smoke

I`ve taken this one on my road back from the Catania area to Palermo. The morning light was caressing the smoke coming out of mount Etna so beautifully that I had to stop the car on the side of the road and take some picture.
I`m pretty sure the people passing by thought I was trying to steal some orange from the trees surrounding the road :)

Milky Dunes

I can still remember how quiet and peaceful the dunes of Piscinas were during that night. I decided to sacrifice a few hours of sleep and go outside and test my new camera and lens at night. The Milky way coming out from the Mediterranean Sea was a very nice gift.

A little old abandoned house in the middle of the fields is the perfect excuse to go through a sea of deep vegetation and enjoy the sunset.
A good day to everyone!

Desert

In the desert, while the sun was setting, these little purple flowers were waiting with me.
Even between the dunes, I wasn`t alone.

Niigata

When winter is coming to an end there are places that are starting to prepare their beautiful spring dress.
Bijin bayashi is probably my favourite place in Niigata and always a pleasure to go to.
Even with more than one meter of snow to walk through ;)

With my little Sigma dp2 Quattro I found myself taking pictures of things for wich I didn`t usually bother taking out my big DSLR for.
When I see something that catches my eye I usally use the phone, but then the image quality suffers too much.
With a Sigma picture I can even use the data for an exhibition If I want to. That`s quite a difference!
These two birds were hanging around a very nice tree in my "homeisland", Sardinia. Just to the right of the tree there`s a 3000 years old ruin, the "nurage di Santa Sabina".
I wonder if the two guys here were interested in it at all :D
Have a good day.

Matsuri

One of the best thing in the traditional festivals is the people that put all themselves into it.
It doesn`t matter if you are about to go down a steep slope riding a huge wood pillar. It doesn`t matter you`re risking your life doing it. It`s tradition. You do it and... well... you better have fun doing it.

From onbashira festival, Nagano prefecture.

Suwa Zen

Lake Suwa is a couple of hours from Tokyo, in the center of Nagano prefecture. Wandering around its surroundings in the season of cherry blossoms it`s quite difficult to find areas that are not crowded with people "sakura" hunting.
But it`s Japan.
Even in the busiest places, you can manage to find oasis of silence, peace and .. zen.
