Scenes from Sicily, Uno – San Vito Lo Capo

Well, we will have been back from Sicily for a month as of tomorrow, and I can’t believe it has passed so quickly. Re-entry is always difficult after a long trip, but we’re adjusting to life in Memphis again and enjoying the recently cooler weather.

I’ve made some progress on processing the photos we took while over there and was able to cull the image total down to about 1000, which is probably pretty good, given we had 2 cameras going for over 3 weeks each.

While memories of the trip are fresh in my mind, I’m going to post a few over the next few weeks with notes about where they were taken.

This shot of the two of us was taken in the northwest area of Sicily, near San Vito Lo Capo. There, it is possible to drive on a little snaking road, up switchbacks and somehow clinging to the side of crumbing hills, to where civilization gives out and the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro (a nature reserve) picks up. It is very remote remote area (electrical line notwithstanding), with a raw, arid beauty, bounded by mountains and reflected by a turquoise sea.

You can see the full album of images from our trip here.

Okay I am going to go to Sicily. My grandparents are from San Martino Messina high in the mountains, I never knew them but your picture inspire me to go. Do you sell your pictures, I am not good at picture taking these are lovely. If you sell then would it be possible to purchase some so I may pass them down to my grandkids. If so let me know how much and what I need to do.

You should definitely go to Sicily! Our pictures only capture a fraction of the beauty of the place.

We’re not selling the photos, but you can download a full-resolution version of any photo by going to and then clicking the photo you want, and then selecting Options and then Download Full Size. Then just print it at Shutterfly or any one of the many online photo printing services…

Thanks for your kind words!
