Giuseppe Sapori - The Hideout

This amazing place is in Gaeta a charming seaside town near Rome, where in addition to making excellent cuisine, there are also beautiful landscapes to admire, including the striking Turkish Cave. This cave is just the crack in the rock that you see in this post, according to the legend, the rift was created in the time of Christ’s death, when he tore the veil of the temple of Jerusalem. Along the steps leading into the bowels of the mountain you can see on the right wall with a Latin couplet alongside the so-called “Hand of the Turkish”, in the shape of a hand that would have formed when an “unbeliever” turkish sailor, who did not believe the story that had been told about the cause of the crack in the rock, was leaning against the rock that became incredibly soft under his pressure forming the imprint of the hand. The Turkish Cave is an amazing place to see with the naked eye to understand the greatness of so much natural beauty. The whole cave does not have to take a lot of light so I took this HDR 9 exposures well that I only edited with Photoshop and with the use of Luminance Masks.
