I arrived early at Villa Daphne, an agriturismo outside the town of Alia, Sicily so my room wasn’t ready. While the maids were rushing to clean it, I made this capture of a storm closing in quickly. Half the sky was black, yet I was still in sunshine. Later, I borrowed the title La Tempesta from the painting by the great Italian Renaissance Master Giorgione. Art scholars have been in controversy over the years about why Giorgione named his painting La Tempesta. It’s far more obvious in my photograph above.
