Waiting for the Summer – the sun terrace of Hotel Raya on Panarea.

This is a place where you can explore endless architectural details, with a breathtaking setting next to the sea. It is certainly one of most beautiful terraces in the entire Aeolian Islands, if not the entire Mediterranean, as many have claimed. I have been endlessly inspired by it, capturing views of its whitewashed walls, arches and the stunning light, over many years. Here the shrine with a Madonna acts like a fulcrum around which the deckchairs are placed.

There is something about the simple geometry of this composition that I love, and captured here in the early season of June means that it was empty. The lack of people in this view imparts a hint of melancholy in the composition, despite the pretty setting; this is something I learnt from my friend the painter Behi Shamiri, whose evocative works of beautiful places are often devoid of people.
