Shown above is Pantanello Beach, on the central-eastern coast of Sicily (Italy), as observed near high tide on February 23, 2021. This mostly sandy, horseshoe-shaped beach has a steep drop-off just offshore, where currents need to be heeded. Agave plants, common along the seaside here, help to stabilize the shoreline. Note the waxing, gibbous Moon (at top).
