As you could see in my previous chapter (check it HERE ), the floral skirt looked really matchy and amazing next to the colours of the sea. The water changes the shades of Mazarine-blue in the distance next to the horizone to denim blue, skye blue, lagoon-blue till green. Every beach where we were showed a diverse range of sea colours: on the rocky beaches the water was more crystal clear while on the sandy parts the waves stirred up not just the different tones but the sand itself.
It’s nearly impossible to take a „bad” picture in Sicily and you really don’t need filter or Photoshop as nature was generous to present souther people with thousand shades of the colour palette. The villa where we stayed for 10 days was only 10 minutes walk from the sea and walking up to the flat rooftop we could see the waves. At night when everything became more quite we heard the murmurs of the sea and the sky was so clear and full of stars which only got covered by the huge palm tree dancing in the wind. The little path leading to the sea was surrounded by oleander bushes full of bright pink flowers which gave a pleasant contrast to the endless fields of olive and lemon trees. I was surprised as a child to see the green and hairy almonds on the trees which reminded me of peaches. I also learned that lemons have several kinds on this beautiful island and their colours change from bright yellow till lime green and dark green as well.
I loved how the snow-white and resin-yellow houses of the village contrasted the sea popping up at the end of the street. Fruits flourished in so vivid colours which would be impossible to paint and the watermelon (which also has several types there) was as big as a baby with a thin dark green skin and dark red and sugar sweet inside. Last day papa Corrado surprised us with a red king prawn lunch (a species living only that part of Sicily) which had velvet-red colour raw then turining into cherry red after the grill.
I think when the Creater reached the south he used all remaining colours from his palette so we can enjoy various tones in the bright sun when visiting Sicily. It is nearly impossible to soak in the view but we tried to capture some beauty on the beach and I chose a multitone Swimsuitsforall bikini to match the diverse colour variety around us.
