From Michele about this image:

The elephant rock starlight.
Natural reserve of Plemmirio. Siracusa, Sicily (Italy). 2017.
The elephant rock is an amazing seaside area close to the Capo Murro di Porco lighthouse located about 9 miles away from the city of Siracusa, Sicily. The site of Plemmirio has become, over the years, a protected area and that has preserved as well its wild and beautiful face, smelling of sea and typical plants. Once we parked the car, a 30′ walk (in the darkness) was needed to reach the cliff in a good position to face the elephant rock and the galactic center of the milky way. Moving along those sharp stones surrounded by prickly plants, was very hard but we got totally repaid by the amazing view and the dark, clear sky. The sound of the waves was the best companion ever, for me and my amazing friends who let me discover this amazing place.
