canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
Below the height of 1000 meters ASL, the sweet western side of Sabini Mounts is covered by dense mediterranean bush.
The ancient paths and trails drawn millenniums ago by shepherds and loggers suffer aggression by the bush, which tries
to reoccupy every corner, every spot.
Paths can survive the attack only if someone cuts the bush at paths' sides as it's growing. An
abandoned path or trail is doomed to be eaten by the bush in a few years.
Canyon of Fosso Cantalupo opens in one of these wild spots of Sabini Mounts. It goes through different types of rock: white limestone, pink limestone and flysch. So its parts have different shapes and colours, depending on rock.
A nice canyoning trail in a solitary place.
I remember ...
I guess it's due to wrong "white balance" ...
The trouble comes when preponderant colour is not due to light, but it really belongs to the objects in the scene.
If most objects are pink, camera's microprocessor will make they look white (or so) in the picture.
Next time I will try manual setting the white balance. I would like to show you that unusual pink environment.
