Comments
Capo Rosso is a peninsula in the very west of Corsica - a highly recommended place for hiking when the higher mountains in the center of the island are covered by clouds, like on the day the photo was taken. A trail with a little more than 10 kilometers (both ways) will bring you there. It’s a great place for hiking and a great place for photography as well.

Scandola Nature Reserve

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandola_Nature_Reserve

The Scandola Nature Reserve is located on the west coast of the French island of Corsica, within the Corsica Regional Park. The reserve was established in 1975. The park and reserve has been recognized by the United Nations as a Natural World Heritage Site, and was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1983.

The Scandola Reserve is situated on the west coast of Corsica between Punta Muchillina and Punta Nera and includes Cape Girolata and Cape Porto. The reserve covers an area of 19.19 km2 (7.41 sq mi) of which 9.19 km2 (3.55 sq mi) is land and 10 km2 (3.9 sq mi) is sea.

The reserve has two sectors, the Elpa Nera inlet and the peninsula of Scandola. The jagged and sheer cliffs contain many grottos and are flanked by numerous stacks and almost inaccessible islets and coves, such as Tuara. The coastline is also noted for its red cliffs, sand beaches, and headlands.
