THIS IS A NEW VIDEONOTE! – SEE BELOW
Dear friends, building on the success of the most recent VideoNote, “Pedalling to the Past”, we are making today’s VideoNote open to the entire readership as well.
As you are aware by now, ItalianNotebook has been experimenting with this new format. It’s a lot of work, but we too feel it’s worth it. And, in offering this extra content and format to our readers, we hope to draw in a little bit of capital that will help us promote and improve the website. Barbara Goldfield (of Savour the Sannio) and I have made the VideoNotes so far and we’re so glad you’re enjoying them. For this we once again thank all those who have donated… and any who might! (Here’s the support page.)
We are going to the let the VideoNote speak for itself. The first half consists of still images, the second half is video. The “soundtrack” is the wind that day.
Punta Falcone is just off of Piombino, facing the Tuscan archipelago. The large island in the background of the VideoNote is Elba. Corsica showed its profile later on that day when the sun was setting, but wasn’t visible when the VideoNote was shot.
The macchia mediterranea (maquis, shrubland) blooms in April. Enjoy!
