Aeolian Islands

The seven Aeolian Islands are situated off the north-eastern coast of Sicily.

The Greek mythology ascribes the islands to Aeolus, and suggest that Odysseus temporarily sheltered there during his travels. There he would met cyclops Polyphemus.

The history itself of these islands is lost in the mist of time, when tectonic plates moved to create a great chasm in the Tyrrhenian Sea thereby releasing a mass of molten magma that hardened into a great volcanic outrcrop, some 1000-3000m from the ocenan floor, of which only a minute proportion emerges above the water. According to most recent theories, this happened during the Pleistocene era, just under a million of years ago.

Hi Tsilla,
A nice blue ambient depicting coolness.
A very sharp image captured from an agreeable POV.
The distant triangular mount in the BG.
Well done,
