The superb location of this beautiful place and a wonderful composition, with the hillside just behind the clouds covering the top, give great charm, letting us see a few patches of blue sky that give a nice touch of color.
Perfect sharpness and brightness.
Have a good week my friend.

magnifica la vista vicina e comprensiva della collina con le impressionanti case antiche e dietro di loro la montagna ed il cielo, tutti e due suggestivi e pieni di dramma. Mi piace tanto anche l' inclusione della strada che porta alla cittadina affascinante. La profondita' e la chiarezza sono ottime, la gestione di luci e colori cosi diversi e' ammirabile. Una foto stupenda, complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

Très belle photo de ce superbe village. Les nuages accrochés aux sommets sont vraiment étonnants et donnent un aspect très intéressant à l'image.
emilbo (22256) 2012-10-29 13:58
Joli village perché sur le haut d'une colline et bien présenté dans un bel éclairage malgré un ciel nuageux. J'aime bien la composition avec le chemin de gravier et l'excellente perspective avec le haut des montagnes recouvertes par la brume.
Toutes mes amitiés,

beato te che avevi il sole, qui per poco si andava in giro col canotto.
Le montagne dietro sembrano ricoperte di ovatta, il cielo è un vero spettacolo.

un POV che non conosco...bello il paese in FG e stupendo il Vettore in BG, ottimi colori e grande profondità...

Che bella dedica al nostro amico Luciano. Sono sicura che l'apprezzerá. Ottimo il taglio verticale, l'effetto della nebbia ed il vicolo nel primo piano che guida gli occhi verso il paesino. L'architettura é affascinante, troppo bella e caratteristica. complimenti.
Un abbraccio e bella giornata

Hello Silvio - What an impressive site. The sunlight falls beautifully on the distinctive little town adding lovely contrasts and highlights to the architecture. The cloud covered mountain peaks make a dramatic back drop to this well composed scene. Interesting to see the area at a different time of year and minus the colourful flowers, no less impressive though! A fine shot. Warm regards rosemary
snunney (78789) 2012-10-30 5:04
That very interesting sky brings a particular mood to this finely composed image. Excellent use of the vertical format to capture the contrasting layers of light and tones. A beautifully lit image with great colours and sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

Ciao caro Silvio,
A beautiful photograph for Luciano and I am pleased that he likes it! So do I!
As you say, the light here is perfect, illuminating the houses beautifully against the dark backdrop of the mountainside. Your composition is excellent with the little road leading the eye nicely into the frame, past the houses and then upwards to the mountain tops covered in cloud and mist. And a glorious blue sky above!
Gorgeous colours, excellent light and contrast, perfect exposure and stunning sharpness.

This is a spectacular phenomenon!
The cloud-covered hills as the backdrop of the Italian
small town, this is a fabulous picture.
saxo042 (36712) 2012-10-30 7:57
Interesting weather conditions here with a blue sky above a cloud (or mist) covering the top of the mountain. Below this cloud, the colours are subdued, but uniformly brown/beige. A very pleasant view of the village here and a an interesting note.
macjake (51418) 2012-10-30 9:05
we should all thank Luciano for this one :)
what an amazing town.
it gets a ten out of ten for charm and elegance, and history too i'm sure.
I like seeing the blue above the clouds for added colors, and the architecture is stunning.
whats not to love on this one!
TopGeo (38168) 2012-10-30 11:21

Great shot of Casteluccio, sharp picture, the earth like tone colors have been greatly highlighted, the clouds over the top of the mountain give a great contrast with the sky and the rest of the image. It is a very natural and beautiful postcard of this little paradise on earth!

Beautiful dedication to Liciano.
This your article reminded me that once upon a time went through my village Aqueduct from Roman times.
And today while digging foundations for new buildings or when agricultural tillage can be found the remains of water pipes.
As usual, your work is fantastic and quality.
Many nice details,lovely colors,excellent composition.

Superb Composition ! The footpath in the foreground starts us off on the journey to this rising cluster of buildings in the hilly village. The angles of the houses impression on the viewer the turns and twists the path takes as it climbs the slopes.
Its sunny and the clouds are yet to come down into the valley. The sunlight brightes up the walls of the builsings.
The images of the buildings have a high contrast and are hence sharp.
The background of the steeply rising hill is dark and ominous, with the clouds covering the top.
The black framing is excellent too.
Thanks for sharing, Silvio !!
abmdsudi (38862) 2012-11-01 3:22
I love the sense of space of this shot with the settlement nicely perched on the hill top almost in seclusion. Expertly captured in rich contrasting colors and so well detailed and great perspective. Lighting is subtle and superbly contrast to the dramatic sky. This is a wonderful scene so well taken, Congrats
