This afternoon, after running errands, I came home and decided that I didn't feel like doing anything productive (i.e. housework) so I grabbed my camera and headed out to capture Sicily in the Spring. I steered the car onto a couple of less-traveled roads that I know and took in the scenery.
As with any photo trip where I take pictures of flowers or anything closeup I am reminded of my desire for a dedicated macro lens. I drool over this and because I don't have a grand to drop on it I also drool over this. I think I could do awesome things with both of these lenses.
Looking out toward the town of Mineo
I live in the valley between where I took this picture and the town on the opposing hill.
Snow capped Mt. Etna in the distance
Other than roads that had significantly deteriorated since the previous year I had a great time. Its a good thing I drove cautiously or else the Subi wouldn't be in very good shape this evening. :) Its amazing what mother nature can accomplish with black top and concrete in just a year's time.
Spring in Sicily is amazing! Bellissima!
