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.

nature at its most colourful and glorious. Difficult to capture the atmosphere and wonder of standing in a field like this, but this shot does capture the atmosphere beautifully.
Enjoy the weekend - B.

This is a great landscape shot with a carpet of colorful flowers. The low POV gives us a nice view of the flowers. The lighting and colors are great here and the photo has fine sharpness and DOF.

Interesting picture this One. I like the points of different colors of flowers, like an impresionist painting... Very effective. Reds, blues, whites, and all mixed with greens and yellows. A real color festival. TFS.
macjake (57362) 2014-08-02 11:14
so now we get more of a close up view eh?
haha, this is just as nice as well.
its great to see how much depth and clarity there is way into the bg areas of the frame.
too bad the fg isn't as infocus, but thats ok...the red colors are attractive and provide that much needed color contrast.
nikkitta (14992) 2014-08-02 11:49
A colorful carpet of flowers covering the fields at the front, artistically mixed, must be a real pleasure to walk there
Also like the so green landscape at the back
Buon fine settimana

da buon proprietario terriero, fai bene a controllare :-)
Ancora fiori a Castelluccio e ancora belle foto.
Magnifica distesa colorata, basta cambiare angolatura che cambia il paesaggio.
jjcordier (76916) 2014-08-02 23:12
Tu nous régales chaque année avec tes magnifiques photos de ce superbe endroit fleuri.
ourania (32763) 2014-08-03 7:55
bellissimo lo spettacolo che offrono ancora i prati di Castelluccio. Mi piace molto come hai isolato questa parte dal grandissimo paesaggio dandole profondita' accattivante. La luce ed i colori sono dolcissimi e la piccola parte ombrosa il alto e' sufficiente per offrire contrasto ed arricchire l' atmosfera. Complimenti e grazie! Complimenti anche per il tuo gusto nelle imbarcazioni:)
Tanti saluti e buona serata,
