[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Calascibetta, perched on a mountain, is the highest village in Italy. The town's rich history stretches over five centuries. Arabs built a stronghold here, leading to the town's name: Mountain Castle. Halat is Arabic for castle. Scibet is the name given the mountain.

Hi Tsilla,
Splendid colors of these roof tops. A very attractive Sicilian town, Calascibetta.
Good light and a nice tight crop to produce this stunning composition.
Very neat work.

Hello Tsilla, these hillside towns offer the photographer such a lovely canvas to play with.
The tight crop works particularly well here, emphasising the steep and crowded town.
A lovely colourful scene.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Tsilla

Wow talk about being crowded. Is that water containers located at each of the houses? Interesting image as the houses head up the hill. Thanks for sharing your part of the world with us.
