This photo was captured from the Cyclops Islands Marine Protected Area, off northeastern Sicily, Italy. The warm colors of dawn on the lava cliffs caught my attention this late winter’s morning. Over thousands of years, erosion of rock faces by waves from the Ionian Sea has shaped the Cyclops’ coast. Photo taken on February 29, 2020.
