Between land and sea, along a strip of land in constant change with he passing of the years, human intervention has gradually settled into the most varied types of inhabitation. From the seventeenth century until now the superimposing of different intentions for this spot, the material and technological resources of the moment and availability of the inherited patrimony have all contributed to a succession of adaptations and additions. Notwithstanding this, the complex encompasses architectural units whose reading is unequivocal, units laid out according to still-clear organisational principals. The state of adulteration and decadence of one part of the complex is the result of a process of natural selection that the project design tries to turn to its favour. Identifying the elements of greater perdurability or greater poetic charge, the proposal reconstructs with, and out of, these a basic order that both encompasses the memory of passing time and makes a new use visible.

Hello Daniel ,
You've found an original POV on the light house , with the old stoned wall in the FG , and the frame by the palm tree and the pine tree .

lovely shot of this wonderful looking lighthouse. Love the fg texturing and your light management is perfect at making the image so colourful, distinctive and enticing. Superb image.
Have a great end to the week - regards Brian.

The lighthouse is interesting and the point of view is excellent. A very well presented image where light, colours and clarity all come together in perfect harmony.

A nicely composed shot of this colourful lighthouse seen against the deep blue sky and lovely palms. The colour and clarity are first rate to go along with your unique POV. I like how the tower appears to eminate from the low stone wall. A beautiful shot.

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue , très bas derrière le mur de rocs, qui apporte de la profondeur à l'ensemble et qui pousse le regard au loin vers le phare.

Hello Daniel - What a super vantage point, I like the FG detail very much and looking across the rocks to the lighthouse, the view is beautifully framed by the greenery. Your vertical presentation is a good choice. Have a lovely weekend. Rosemary
