Blue Channel, Sicily

8 Photos in This Gallery

Mount Etna is an active Volcano located in a densely populated area on the East side of Sicily.  The monster Typhon was believed to be trapped under the mountain by Zeus.  It is possible to drive up to about the 3,000 meter level and go higher using a ski lift.  Fabulous views are available from nearby Taormina.

    • I have been going back and forth between Twenty Twelve and Modularity Lite. I am on Twenty Twelve now and will probably stay there a while.

      • But the other way was easier to watch the photos, to my opinion… I will try it again, of course… I’ll get used to it… ;)

        • They really are not that different. How was the other one easier to view?

        • The other theme, Modularity Lite had the following differences:
          Smaller type size (bad)
          Post titles always on top (good, and this might be what you noticed.)
          Not as good on Mobile phones.
          No infinite scroll, but widgets at the bottom of the page.
          No frames around thumbnails (looks better)
