Photographer's Note

This is what you see at the gates of Pompeii, quite a contrast to the ash frozen bodies inside the site.

Exposure on this shot was a bit tricky, there was a pile of lemons (partially visible) in the sun that were over exposed. I decided to try this crop and actually like it a lot.

The bottles contain delicious Limoncello liqueur and the huge yellow hanging fruits are real lemons...

from wikipedia:

Citrus is a common term and genus of flowering plants in the family Rutaceae, originating in tropical and subtropical southeast Asia. The plants are large shrubs or small trees, reaching 5–15 m tall, with spiny shoots and alternately arranged evergreen leaves with an entire margin.

Citrus fruits are notable for their fragrance, partly due to flavonoids and limonoids (which in turn are terpenes) contained in the rind, and most are juice-laden. The juice contains a high quantity of citric acid giving them their characteristic sharp flavour. They are also good sources of vitamin C and flavonoids.
