The story behind the image

Our 2010 trip to the island of Sardinia, Italy, was a photographic feast. Sardinia has so many beautiful sights that it’s impossible to visit them all in just two weeks. It probably takes a lifetime to see everything.

I took this panorama photo at the Capo San Marco which is a peninsula at the western coast of Sardinia. You can clearly see the waves rolling in strongly from the Mediterranean Sea. In the back there’s the Torre Costiera di San Giovanni watchtower that dominates the picture.

I just love this giant image which I composed from several photos. Looking at the high resolution file enables me to discover small details and transports me back in time to re-imagine the scenery, just as if I was there right now.
