During our visit to Favignana island we met strong wind and an incredible stormy sea, particularly in this bay, Cala Rossa.
This place is famous for its cliffs cutted to obtain local stones.
A man found a repair here, with a natural swimming pool created in the ceturies by human work.

stunning work on this! The pov is just perfect with that vertigo we all like. The details of of blue water and rocks are superb in quality. Lucky guy is that one! Great job!

Bello il cambio di toni di verde-blu. Una bella inquadratura.

un bel endroit de repos au calme devant la mer agitée, les roches acérées et les couleurs de l'eau sont superbes

Interesting look-down view and I love the green of the water in the little pool as a contrast to the otherwise beautiful blue sea. The man seems to enjoy the Sicily sun. He obviously tries to cool down in this beautiful natural pool. Nice photo, Giorgio, I like it. Have a good afternoon, Barbara.

Ottimo taglio e POV per questa bella foto, con i colori tipici dello splendido mare di Favignana e con le tipiche "piscine" formate dal taglio della roccia nei secoli passati.
ottima qualità e colori veramente molto belli.

Interesting spot and a nice sharp picture with good colors.
The little green plant in FG and the distant sunbathing man creates a good feeling of depth.
Composition is original and very effective here.

Now that would be a place I would love to visit.
Hearing the waves crash against the rocks and having such a calm pool all to yourself.
Providing there are no photographers to spoil the seclusion!
Lovely work Giorgio! Those different colours in the sea and the pool and the massive rocks make for a very good composition.

What a superb angle of view. The pleasing blue tone is a very good variation in colour in the shot.

pablominto (53744) 2007-12-06 12:03
This is a good catch!
I notice the fellow down there, he has really found himself a great place to spend the day...
A well balanced composition from a good point of view, very attractive colours!
scroller (3407) 2007-12-06 12:39
Apart from that it is a very beautuful place , you have added a lot of humor in this photo. Well done!
noborders (1010) 2007-12-06 13:02
This photo gives me the vertigo, fortunately you did not fall down ! colours are superb and the POV, excellent, bravo !

Applauso per questo angolo di vista. Sogno così di un luogo per me! Quando il mare è calmo, i fondi devono essere magnifici.
Amo anche questa piantina che spinge nella roccia e che do del verde al primo piano. Penso che è un cappero.

Excellent POV Giorgio.
The colours and sharpness are of very good quality. And the inclusion of that man gives the sense of dimension.
miumiu (5224) 2007-12-08 12:51

It looks as a really nice place to have some "far niente"! The colors of the clear water are beautiful and make nice contrasts with the cut stones of the coast.
Thanks for sharing!
MeAT (1174) 2007-12-10 6:34
Wow! Dramatic view, nicely saturated colours, unusual place in the world good reference of proportions with the guy in the pool. This is what sharing pics on TrekEarth is all about!
pattyis (1317) 2007-12-10 11:58
ma che meraviglia il mare siciliano!
stupendo contrasto tra le rocce e la tavolozza di azzurri del mare...
un favoloso scorcio di vita ideale: sole mare e sicuramente tanto silenzio!
zmey (7335) 2007-12-11 7:26
bongiorno, giorgio! nice composition and scene indeed. interesting that the rocks have been formed this way through human work over centuries. an excellent POV. nice color contrasts too.
my compliments and TFS

Una imagen de vértigo. Magnífico encuadre con estupendos colores y detalles. Me gusta mucho el contraste de las piedras y el agua. Buena realización.
jafadabret (56501) 2007-12-16 23:21
J'aime cette composition en contraste et en lignes brisées pour donner le relief. Les couleurs de la mer sont superbes. Une excellente photo.
gelarsen (437) 2007-12-18 14:18
Colors are great. Very interesting place.
Benedict (7076) 2008-01-04 6:01
what a perfect place to unwind...cool breeze, blue waters- a combination of nature and human work of arts. Beautiful one, Gio. the vine on the FG adds the awe, and of course the "model" getting a sun tan allows the viewers to give that wider look of the place....:-)
Felip (3907) 2008-09-14 9:50
Your shot proves, once again!, how insignificant we are compared with mother nature. Splendid image plenty of details.
jboj (251) 2009-01-09 2:00
Wonderful place, superb colours :)
