Beautiful composition with lovely shapes and beautiful textural details of the historic architecture. The play of light and shadows on the road and the building walls is really a pleasure to view.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Good Evening Silvio - The first thing that I like about this shot is the harmonious colour palette. The soft greys are beautiful and delicately contrasted by touched of warm terracotta and fresh green. The composition is simple and perfect showing the rustic stone and wood very well. A fine photograph and a scene that delights
This time next week we will be on our way to Firenze, I will call you from Norica ans hopefully we can meet up.

This is a wonderful image, all of these arches reflect each others beauty, and the colors and tones of the scene is somber and very unique. To contrast that somber feel, the beam of light flooding from the left brightens it up really nicely. Excellent note too, to accompany this very cool image.
Thanks as always

mi sto allenando, da grande voglio fare il Silvio di Toscana, questo borgo ha una certa similitudine con qualcosa che ho fotografato anch'io.
Sono veramente fantastici, sembrerebbe che una volta visto uno, li hai visti tutti, in realtà ognuno ha le sue particolarità e la sua storia, che spesso si incrocia con gli altri borghi, ma è sempre unica.

Mysterious pathway with varying architectural styles over the centuries, and perhaps each arch entry opening to historical wonders. Would love to explore San Terenziano on my own.
Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Silvio, It seems to me that you go round Umbria all the time and find more and more amazing places. Fabulous view of this quiet corner of stone walls. Superb composition, as always.
Warm regrads MAlgo

è bello vedere queste tue foto di piccoli borghi dell'Umbria con le stradine deserte, le case in pietra ed i portali medioevali che ricordano qualche pretesa di tempi passati.
E' un vero piacere anche osservare come essi siano ben tenuti dalla scarsa popolazione con particolare cura per il verde che spesso orma la nudita della pietra.
Tecnica fotografica perfetta nella ripresa.
Ciao e buona giornata

I like this one very much indeed, it has a wonderful timeless atmosphere about it. Ideal point of view and perfectly exposed. Superb light, that brings out the textures in the old walls beautifully. Great work, thanks for sharing.

una vista ben sistemata e profonda, molto interessante e con atmosfera piacevole. L' hai inquadrata con molta cura, le prospettive sono forti ed attrenti. Mi piace molto il gioco fra luce ed ombra e le tonalita' in tutto il quadro sono armoniose e gradevoli. Mi ha impressionata molto la tua gestione di luce ed ombre ed il fatto che non hai perso nessun dettaglio fino allo sfondo. Superbe le tessiture. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
