Along the "Fiumara" (provincial road SP 54), a road that I travel every morning on my way to school, the rocky spur featured above has long fascinated me. It follows a bend in a stream near the Baroque town of Modica (Ragusa, Sicily, Italy). This spur, part of the Hyblaean Range, is composed of white limestone strata. When facing the Sun, it's visible from miles away. Photo taken on April 11, 2022 (at 16:30 local time).

Photo details: Nikon D700 camera; 48mm; ISO 200; f/8; 1/400 second exposure.
