Plans Castelluccio is the bottom of an ancient lake near Castelluccio di Norcia, now disappered, known for its karst phenomena.
Plans are three, are located in 1,350 m s.l.m. and cover an area of 15 km ². In particular:
• the Pian Grande
• the Pian Piccolo
• the Pian Perduto.
In the most southern part of the Pian Grande is the curious "fosso del Mergani" what apparently seems to be a water powered by a source is actually a valley by a grain shape ending in a inghiottitoio end where the rainwater intercepted by the ditch Mergani.
They are famous for Fiorita, namely the massive flowering phenomenon that colors the plan in late May and early July (especially poppies, fiordalisi, daisies) and represents a unique natural spectacle, do not miss it eh .

Beautiful landscape lit by delightful dappled light. The colours and shapes are wonderful.

mi stavo chiedendo se esiste un modo per fare brutte foto in questo luogo, sembra impossibile.
PS ho provato un nuovo effetto per vedere cosa veniva fuori e per sentire i commenti degli amici di TE, ma per adesso ho raccolto poco...

Impressive Piano di Castelluccio landscape for the rectangular fields accented with wildflowers stretching to the rolling hills in the distant horizon, and not a building in sight.
Reminiscent of a painter's landscape.

Nel mese di Maggio, penso sempre dei piani di Castelluccio. Bellissimo il tuo POV, stupenda i colori, la profonditá e struttura. Spero che un giorno presto, posso vedere questo spettacolo di persona.
Un abbraccio e buon weekend

Hello Silvio - Seeing the landscape studded with colourful flowers is a dream I still have to realise.
We visited Castelluccio on two successive days when we were staying in Norcia. The first was very cold and overcast but fortunately the second day was mixed sun and cloud and we enjoyed our drive through the Monti Sibillini National Park and environs very much. We hope to visit again one day to see the flower spectacular.
Through your shots here on TE you have inspired me to visit the area and I want to thank you for that. It is shots like this that capture my imagination. Wonderful.

bellissima immagine dei magnifici piani di Castelluccio. Una vista di stupenda profondita', con line sottili che disegnano il paesaggio straordinario. Mi piace molto la luce ed i colori dolci ma anche le ombre che offrono un aria di suggestione che fa' grande effetto. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,

A lively landscape and a fuller wide view from this high vantage point where patches of vivid red sweeps the eye nicely into the depth,. It's subtly processed shot with lovely shades and shadows lend this a delightful shot, Great photo works and tfs.

Bellissima luce e grande prospettiva su Castelluccio. Sempre un spettacolo!
Un caro saluto.

I love it! This view reminds me my flights by planes. I like to see the rural landscapes from the sky. Outstanding graphic, very nice summer colors.
macjake (54124) 2014-06-15 12:45
you know why I like this one? because it looks like an airplane landing strip! haha
the long fields look so large, so much flat open space.
even with the white sky this photo looks great, I wish I were here to capture this myself.
adores (35106) 2014-07-01 17:33
Another great shot of these fields! I like the pattern of the fields with the lonely tree in foreground and also the light. Light is really great here and gives special tonalities to the fields.
