SEPTEMBER 2010 – A panorama photo shows rusty lorries at the beach of Piscinas, Sardinia. They are historic leftovers from the times when the close-by village Ingurtosu was an active mine. © Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
At the Costa Verde – the “Green Coast” – in Sardinia, we drove the way down to Piscinas. The last couple of kilometers was just a gravel road along the gently curved green hills that gave this part of the west coast its name. At the end you will be greeted by lots of parking lots, the premium Hotel Le Dune Piscinas, and a beautiful, long beach with white sand.
Not far away from the beach, you will find these lorries. They are some of the remains of the times when the close-by village Ingurtosu was an active mine. The ore would be transported from Ingurtosu to Piscinas and stored there before being shipped from the tiny harbour.
This panorama photo was created from five individual shots. The focal length of 50 mm (on my trusted Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM lens) keeps distortions low and sharpness high. The result is a magnificent extremely wide panorama. When zooming into the original high resolution file makes me feel as if I am back there, right now.
