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.

mi ricordo di una tua foto del anno scorso, credo, dove avevi ancora usato i pilloni come un motivo elegante e dinamico della composizione. Il risultato mi piace moltissimo, offre un ritmo gradevole e definisce lo spazio superbamente. Anche in questa composizione, le diagonali ed i colori fanno un effetto magnifico. Le tessiture vellutate e le ombre sottilissime sono meravigliose. Ottima l' idea di concentrare solo nei campi. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,
PS Grazie per il tuo commento di oggi, e' interessante come si parla delle auto non come oggetti ma come compagni:)

I think thse fields can be shown time and time again. Nobody could ever get tired of these combinations of natural colours. It's fascinatin to see how it's not a red field next to a blue, followed by a green field etc. The colours smoothly change from one tone to another in a most refined way. This high POV gives us full possibility to admire the scenery.

Beautiful panoramic view of Castelluccio's immense flower fields in a rainbow of colors blended with green hues. And the power poles crossing, appearing like crosses.

A wonderful high pov with a superb carpet and patch quilt effect of the different colored fields and flowers. The diagonal row of electric transformer towers and telegraph poles adds dynamism and also provides lead in lines and linear perspective. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
