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.

Great capture of this magical landscape with its chequerboard field patterns. I like the placement of the road on the diagonal and the presence of the people who bring the scene to life. Superb light and colours.

Oooh la la! Che colori, che strutture. Il gioco sottile tra luce ed ombra é bellissimo. Adoro le linee diagonali e il taglio stretto
Un abbraccio e buon weekend

Hello Silvio - The play of light and shade across the colourful fields adds to the atmosphere of your composition and gives me a feel for the sky above. I like the tiny figures that populate the roadside, they must be as bowled over by the scene as I am!
Have a lovely weekend

Always this fantastic and colored landscape, but this time with deep shadows and a diagonal path walked by many small groups of pedestrians.
Looking closely, I would have removed the top: road with a car at right and even the white house in the center to focus on this marvelous patchwork.

E' sempre un gran bel vedere.
ourania (46364) 2014-07-11 13:58
un magnifico spettacolo che sembra tanto naturale che artistico. Mi piace molto la grandissima profondita' e la costante alternazione di colori, luce ed ombre. I colori sono incantevoli e l' atmosfera magica. Le persone che camminano in mezzo ai campi colorati aggiungono movimento e dinamismo. Il tuo punto di vista e' davvero gratificante. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

love seeing the people strolling along, it really does show just how large the landscape truly is.
love seeing the blue/purple colors of flowers aswell, and the large clouds producing the shade is an excellent feature.
enjoy your weekend

Ciao caro Silvio,
This is a delightful and wonderfully colourful photograph of the plateau of Castelluccio in summertime!
The glorious patchwork of colourful fields of bright flowers is a joy to the eye and you have captured it perfectly here. And what I really love are the little roads where we see the tiny figures of people walking amongst those colouful fields. And the variegated light caused by the clouds overhead adds to the beauty of the scene.
Fabulous light and colours, fine composition, perfect exposure and stunning details and clarity.

Buona sera Silvio,
A fabulous harmony of colors, a "mosaic" vivid tones over the field.
Charming how every year you managed such beauty on photos - and each is yet very differenty.
Cricri (120199) 2014-07-14 12:05
Ciao ami Silvio
Incroyable variétés des couleurs dans ce paysage magnifique, bel effet ombre a la lumière
pierrefonds (66955) 2014-07-14 19:10
I like the display of the fields with different colors. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the fields. The length of them is giving depth to the composition. Have a nice day.
danos (98561) 2014-07-14 22:26
fascinating the view of this 'colourful' carpet with the lithed and shadowed areas to meke the whole image even more effective.
Very nice the panoramic view with the tight frame to enhance even more the beauty of it.
jhm (153792) 2014-07-15 3:51
This panorama view is a nice patchwork
Colours and sharpness are excellent made.

beautifully captured mosaic of the fields with their contrasting colors and nice game of shadows and light. Tight framing focuses entirely on the subject and helps to achieve simple and elegant composition.
Thanks for sharing
abmdsudi (54619) 2014-07-15 7:23
A glorious landscape as far as the ye can see! and cheery enough with patches of stunning colours beautified by lovely dappled light and shadows. I am not sure how I'd describe this image but suffice it to say I adore it. Excellent use of full dof, immense depth and good exposure control. Excellent catch, tfs
emka (98894) 2014-07-15 11:23
