Repubblica.it Il tramonto, la medusa e Ischia: lo scatto che esalta il golfo di Napoli

Repubblica napoli Il tramonto, la medusa e Ischia: lo scatto che esalta il golfo di Napoli La suggestione di un tramonto, la sagoma dell’isola d’Ischia e la biodiversità del golfo di Napoli. Sintetizzate in un unico scatto fotografico, un vero e proprio inno alla bellezza del mare campano. L’autore è il biologo e fotografo subacqueo Pasquale Vassallo, che si è immerso nelle fredde acque di Capo Miseno, dove ha incontrato un esemplare di Rhizostoma pulmo, comunemente chiamata “polmone di mare”, la cui presenza – in numeri significativi – ha contraddistinto negli ultimi mesi l’ecosistema del golfo. Paesaggio e biologia, mare e isole, le mille sfumature pastello del crepuscolo d’inverno: la foto di Vassallo è un efficace spot della bellezza del mare campano.
