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.

This is such a magical scene, I cannot imagine the worlds greatest artist being able to create a vision more stunning that this. So many shades of color, and all from the natural world which makes it even more special. A very special place, thanks for sharing it.

You`ve made good use of your long lens.
The patchwork of irregular shaped fields are most attractive with the subdued colours adding their charm to a well cropped scene.
Best regards Les.

Another good shot of these fields! I like the shadows of the clouds and the colourful pattern is excellent. The people seem so small there!

Ciao caro Silvio,
Another of your beautiful photographs of the plateau of Castelluccio during the "Closing"!
A glorious patchwork of vibrant colours, taken in beautiful light and perfectly composed with the roadway curving away at top right, the lovely lines between the fields and the shadows cast by clouds upon the landscape.
Fabulous technical quality too.

you have published captures of these plains several times before, every picture being better than those before. I wish I would be given the occasion to see that spectacular view.

Hello dear Silvio,
More than a photographic capture; almost a modern painting.
I like those different trials, using traditional techniques of photography but creating different graphical effect.
TFS and have a nice weekend

A fantasy of colours, curves, shapes and shadows. What a pleasure to view. Well done my friend Silvio.

Buona sera Silvio,
Colorful carpet over the wide valley, not for the first time - but each picture from there is beautiful and yet a bit different.
Light management, DOF and clarity, scaled by the figures in the fields - all culminate beautifully on photo.

magnifica la vista e lo spettacolo naturale, il gioco di colori, forme, angoli, luce ed ombre. Prospettiva e profondita' ci fanno sentire come in volo, una sensazione incantevole. Mi piace molto l' atmosfera e la dolcezza dei colori. I dettagli introscono un aspetto realistico sorpredente ed intrigante. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

amazing texture from fields you captured.

Another fabulous shot from this famous landscape. The colours are just fantastic and the small figures seen at the centre of the photo give us an idea of the dimensions.
ktanska (27844) 2014-09-05 11:46
It is interesting to compare the pictures you have taken of these colourful fields. They are all great, but what makes differences is the varying light. On this one darker shadows and sunny fields show exceptionally well.
kasianowak (9179) 2014-09-05 12:08
Beautiful carpet of flowers! Abstract and realistic at the same time. Wonderful colours.
Have a nice weekend

Uno spettacolo a ogni scatto, non c'è che dire.

photoray (13981) 2014-09-06 18:02
Your elevated view of Castelluccio's flower fields is very attractive, multiple flower sections and varying color patterns and covering a large area. Would enjoy visiting during the Closing.
thanks for sharing,

Those colorful fields are wonderful and it's always a pleasure to see them in pictures shared by you here on TE!
macjake (68420) 2014-09-08 12:13
you could post 20 of these photos in a row and i'd enjoy each and every one of them.
the colors looks somewhat faded, but that just makes it that much more realistic and natural.
love the patches, looking like an old quilt :)
