18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sunset at the "Mangiabarche" (literally 'boat-eater' in English) lighthouse, Calasetta, Sant’Antioco Island, Sardinia, Italy. These rocks, which like the crests of dinosaurs emerge from the water, give a good idea of how treacherous this stretch of sea is for boats. The lighthouse, in fact, owes its name to the numerous stranded and sunken near it.
