Sicilian Moments: 2017

Posted by Suzanne on 17 Oct 2017

Quiet moments captured in Sicily this year from the streets of the capital Palermo, to Polizzi Generosa, and the bucolic landscape of the Madonie Mountains with side trips to the Baroque south east - Scicli, Modica, and Ragusa, plus the beauty of Cefalu and the tiny fishing village of Santa Flavia, both on the Tyrrhenian Sea, east of Palermo.

Scroll through a couple of dozen or so images I took mid year in Sicily. I hope you enjoy them.
