Between the end of May and the first days of July, the plateau of Castelluccio is witness of an event of particular importance, the Closing. For various weeks the monochromatic view of the pasture, it comes broken from a mosaic of colors, with variations of tones that go from the ocher yellow to the red one. Even if "the Bloomed" festivity of falls back in second Sunday of June, does not exist a precise day in order to admire this charming show. Every year all is entrusted the climatic course of the season. In this period there are a lot of species of flowers in the Large Plane and the Lost Plane, walking along the paths can meet: genzianelle, narcissuses, violette, poppies, ranuncoli, asphodels, viola Eugeniae, alfalfas, acetoselle and other.
Place to 1452 meters on the sea level Castelluccio is the highest inhabited place of the Umbria. Place on the top of a hill that separates the Great Plan from tight the Lost Plan is a delicious small village with narrow lanes and the houses leaned the one to the others, nearly to repair itself from the great cold of winter. The Plan is famous beyond that for its splendid closing, also for the cultivation of the lenticchia, plant annual that blooms between May and August, pertaining to the family of the leguminose.

A wonderful abstract composition that looks like soft brush strokes of colour. What a marvellous sight Silvio! I'm extremely jealous.

Un point de vue parfait sur ces champs multicolores. On dirait qu'ils filent à pleine vitesse tellement on a une impression de mouvement.

Marvelous set of colors, taken from a high POV, vivid and beautiful sight.

Wonderful abstract that shows the flowers in the most beautiful way - like a piece of an oriental carpet or exotic textile.
Have a nice evening

Wow, this is just amazing. There is nothing more glorious than the spectacle that nature can create and here is the living proof. Monet would be so pleased to see a scene like this, the mixed almost brushed looking colors remind me of his work. Fantastic vantage point also, to take in so much wide space in such a location.

magnifica la composizione in formato verticale, creata dai meravigliosi colori della fioritura. L' immensita' e la ricchezza dello spettacolo naturale incantano, la tua immagine e' davvero gratificante. Il gioco di luce ed ombra, dovuto alle nuvole, crea un' atmosfera straordinaria. Le palle nel prato lontano ci offrono un segno della stupenda profondita'. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

The vertical format is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the diversities and the colors of the fields. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Un tappeto sorprendente. Mi piacciono molto le linee diagonali ed i colori che sembrano un arcobaleno. Hai scelto bene il taglio verticale ed ottenuto una profonditá impressionante.
Complimenti, un abbraccione per il ragazzo del compleanno
