How does one capture Mari Tirrenu (Sicilian dialect for Tyrrhenian Sea)? My approach began with gazing at it from the rooftop of Al Saraceno Gardens for a few evenings. It was a gentle body of water during my stay in Cefalù so that’s how I see it. It’s hard to imagine storms, or the ships of invaders appearing on the horizon every few hundred years or so. My feelings were more tranquil so I finalized my vision of calm and serenity by opening my shutter for 42.3 minutes, eliminating all motion…not even one diner at the outdoor tables.
