Photographer's Note

The Agriates Desert (Désert des Agriates in French), located in the North Corsica between Saint Florent and the Ostricone River, is a fascinating landscape when viewed by own eyeball, but probably the most difficult one to photograph in Corsica. I took about 10 photos from the road on its eastern edge and all of them are quite boring. This one is boring too, but a little less than others.

They said the Agriates has been a rich culture land till the beginning of the 20th century, full of farms with thousands olive trees, lemons and figs. But after the World War I it began becoming depopulated and now it is dry, infertile and stony desert. Despite that, it still has a great charm for nature lovers and hikers. Here is more information on the Agriates desert in French and more Agriates photos in my website.
