The story behind the image

A while ago I shared an image of the southern beach of Vieste in Italy with the Monolite Pizzomunno overtowering the beach.

Now, here’s the countershot. Captured from the public park behind the monolith, it still looks impressive but compared to the steep cliffs it appears almost small. It’s easy to see why they built the Castello Svevo Aragonese (which is visible behind the monolith) on top of the cliffs: tt provides excellent views in all directions and makes conquering the Castello a challenge.
