Famous photographers who discovered Sardinia
years ago love the island for its endless, unspoiled white
sandy beaches framed by an emerald sea and an intense blue
sky, the wild mountain ranges, the canyons and bays and the
special quality of the light.
Sardinia is the island of contradictions. Also known as ‘
the little continent’ because of the immense variety
of land – and seascapes. Near endless plains alternate
steep volcanic rock faces facing the sea and gently sloping
hills covered with the bushes and shrubs of the ‘ macchia
mediterranea ‘ .
The heart of the island displays the wild and lonely Gennargentu
mountain range with peaks up to 6000 ft.
There is more though, romanesque churches, ancient Nuraghe,
roman roads, Phoenician sanctuaries, Spanish guard towers
along the coasts and hidden temples and burial sites.
The mild climate and the perfect light conditions enable near
year round outdoor shooting. Each village, however small an
be easily reached. All main roads are tarmac, but there are
still many areas which can only be reached by country roads
or following tracks by off road car.
