Eolie Islands

I’m going to work to Vulcano island, one among the seven islands that form the Eolian archipelago. A bunch of stones throw in the middle of nowhere lost in the deep blue sea, off the coast of Calabria and north of the small city of Milazzo, Sicily. I have my car with me so I’m obliged to get on the ferry, instead than the hydrofoil. Leaving the night we get to Stromboli, the first island, early morning, around 6:00 am, when the sun is just about to climb over the horizon. The golden light of the first rays soften the rugged shape and the dark complexion of the iconic island, famous for its active volcano. Even though you don’t get off here, it’s well worthing to wake up early and enjoy the wonderful show that Mother Nature is giving to us since ever! After Stromboli the ferry goes towards Panarea to, later, touch all the islands to finally land to Vulcano, the farest coming from the North, but the closest one to the sicilian coast. Here some shots taken that morning…
