Lilliput – 4

a cloudy view of the  Scala dei Turchi, an eye-catching  white rocky cliff  near the city of Agrigento, southern Sicily.

The italian name means “the Turkish staircase”. It is related to the time when the Turkish pirates  threatened to invade this side of Sicily anchoring their boats here out of the wind.

The rocky formation looks like a staircase carved by man

    • Sorry for my late answer, Angela, I was for some days far from an internet connection 🙂
      Thanks for your nice comment. Really in that place you can breathe a magic atmosphere. There are many wonderful shots of it in sunny days, but I was captured by the light of that foggy and stormy afternoon. Cheers. Riccardo
