At the end of the country, near the present cemetery, is the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace shrine built as an extension of country of the fifteenth century with the appearance of miraculous to a child of the place, Lady on horseback. The interior is decorated with frescoes dating ex-voto for the most part in the sixteenth century by John Spain and his school. Not far from the village, on the road to Gavelli, is the Romanesque church of Santa Cristina country. The interior of this church is completely covered with frescoes dating back to the votes from ex-XIV-XVI centuries and depicting the patron saints and biblical scenes, according to the simple popular language.

non posso che elogiare questa foto già vista in anteprima per il felice incontro tra il colore abbagliante della neve, la delicatezza della facciata delle case e la vegetazione dai colori bruni che portano ad una composizione elegante e molto equilibrata.
Ciao e buona domenica

This is an exquisitely composed shot, both across the frame and in depth; the ancient town follows a fine diagonal across the frame, flanked by the parallel bushes and the distant mountains. In terms of depth, there are three distinct layers, from the f/g to the b/g. This really is a text bbok shot.
The wintery garb adds much to the drama and the interest in this place.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Good winter shot!

il nome è simile al paese di mia madre, anche le case arroccate sono simili.
Un antico castello trasformato in borgo, sicuramente più piacevole in estate che in inverno, anche se adesso il contrasto con la neve è fotograficamente migliore.

Snow puts a whole new complexion on the landscape. The point of view is excellent giving us a good overview over this charming hilltop village. I like very much the framing offered by the snowy branches and the pleasant range of soft colours.
Kamilutka (3207) 2013-01-20 3:02
This photo is very strring and romantic. Lovely subtle colors are liven up slightly by the brownish leaves which also work as a perfect framing. Superb location and very well caught!
Have a lovely Sunday!

Cette belle petite neige change complètement le paysage italien. Le point de vue sur le village accroché aux flancs de la montagne est parfait et le cadrage excellent.

Very beautiful winterscape with a good POV of this delghtful snowy village. I like the downward perspective here looking down on the village, emphasizing its isolated setting amid mountains. The brown leaves and the snow clinging to the branches add to the beauty of this picture post card scene. Very nice shot.

Beautiful framing with these houses on the top of the hill with a splendid winter atmosphere. Congratulations!

superbo il punto di vista dal quale hai composto questa immagine molto attraente ed interessante. La profondita' e l' inquadratura, la chiarezza e la gestione della luce sono tutte meravigliose ed esaltano la bella vista invernale. I colori fanno una combinazione elegantissima.

Ciao Silvio, è difficile scegliere una delle tue foto e dire quale sia la più bella!
Si rappresenta come fotografo tutte le bellezze naturali del tuo paese e ogni immagine è uno straordinario esempio di migliore d'Italia.
dkmurphys (36857) 2013-01-20 12:19
Lovely winter scene. The place is amazing, almost of an unreal beauty. Good catch!
willperrett (2959) 2013-01-20 12:25
What a beautiful place, and in such conditions it looks absolutely magical. We had the first dusting of snow here on the South Coast a couple of days ago: it looks as though you've had more. I guess this isn't so far from where you live. I love the near-monochrome palette that is lifted by the oranges of the dead leaves in the foreground. Good work.
Gigidusud (8106) 2013-01-20 13:15
Splendido villaggio innevato e ben incorniciato con l'albero ai colori autunnali.Un bel contrasto di colori,ben fatto!
adramad (27556) 2013-01-20 15:15
A completely new image that conveys all the beauty and also the cold this winter, the composition is superb, with the population making a diagonal line in the plane, according to the form of the slope, ideal these dead branches of the tree that give a nice touch of color.
A wonderful job my friend, I love these snowy landscapes.
Very well done.
Good start to the week.
macjake (39235) 2013-01-20 15:50
i would call this one frosted rooftops :)
its a very pleasing scene, especially with the rusted colored leaves in the fg to compliment the scene.
love love love the city view, extremely charming!
well chosen POV
jjcordier (62394) 2013-01-20 21:28
Une très bonne photo de ce village dans sa parure hivernale. Joli cadrage et bonne lumière douce.
ikeharel (37424) 2013-01-21 1:29
White snow-blanket over the roof-tops on the small town, cold yet beautiful scenery.
Nice taken the slop above trees line in FG.
batalay (32868) 2013-01-21 1:51
The dusting of snow has given this scene a magical atmosphere. From conception to implementation this is a genuinely beautiful photo.
Warm regards, Silvio.
delpeoples (45018) 2013-01-21 3:25

Another splendid Italian landscape! Beautiful composition and lovely muted light and colours. Looks like I'll be visiting Italy in winter soon and it's all your fault! ;)

Hello Silvio - Looking at this shot makes me wish I could teleport myself into the scene. We are experiencing extremely hot weather here and this looks to cold (but inviting). A wonderful shot, super POV with the fringe of russet leaves adding depth and good colour. Warm regards rosemary
Cricri (86535) 2013-01-22 9:12
Ciao ami Silvio
Joli le feuillages qui offre une jolie vue sur le village enneigée entourée de forêt blanches, bon POV, très jolie
adores (28248) 2013-01-26 10:15
This reminds me of some villages we have here! The pov makes it look almost like a 3D photo. I like these brown leaves in foreground, framing the village.Good light also! I like this winter scenery!
