Selinunte (Greek: Σελινοῦς; Latin: Selinus) is an ancient Greek archaeological site on the south coast of Sicily, southern Italy, between the valleys of the rivers Belice and Modione in the province of Trapani. It was one of the most important of the Greek colonies in Sicily. The archaeological site contains five temples centered on an acropolis. Of the five temples, only the Temple of Hera, also known as “Temple E”, has been re-erected. (source:wikipedia)

Windmill at Dusk. Shot at Saline di Marsala (Trapani) – Sicily – Sicilia
Ok, so, this was quite a surprise when I watched the results of the 30 seconds exposure. You can’t integrate the scene for 30 seconds with your eyes… so this is something you can see only using your camera. In this case I used my Canon 550D. Actually, to the naked eye, it was almost complete darkness, I could barely see some light on the horizon. But when a previewed the picture on the LCD, I was really surprised of the result. I just love this atmosphere.

I would suggest to anyone who loves the beauty of greek nature and architecture to visit Santorini. This is a view of the blue domes and tower bell in Oia. There are a lot of these fantastic blue domes in Santorini.

Actually, my first Flickr work on a Canon 550D image!
I have been asked this picture for an oil paint. I gave the permission to the gentle american woman that asked for it and… I am waiting for the final result. I hope she is enjoying the act of painting this view.
