Back in the XV-XVI century the Republic of Genoa, of which Corsica was part at that time, ordered the building of a warning system consisting in dozens of guard towers all along the coast, with the aim to keep safe the island from the many enemies the Republic was facing, including pirates. Each tower was in sight of at least two other towers, and in the case of enemy sighting, alarm was easily and rapidly launched by mean of fires. The Tower of Barcaggio is one of the best conserved, among the 60 towers which have arrived to the present time. I took this picture on a late evening at the beginning of September, while a front was rapidly moving off to sea after a strong wind a nd rain storm. This picture is the result of a very long exposure . 3 minutes - obtained by means of a strong neutral density filtration (10 stops)
