Bonsoir, cher Silvio,
Une petite ville accrochée à la montagne joliment entourée d'un paysage champêtre.
Une ambiance réaliste et fort bien présentée.

Ciao caro Silvio,
This is a delightful photograph of this little Umbrian town, sitting like so many on a small hill surmounted by its church and tower and surrounded by beautiful fields.
Beautiful light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness best seen, of course, on the full-sized version.

tempo inclemente e luce difficile, ma sempre un'ottima prova.
Un piccolo paese diradato sul pendio della collina e circondato da altre colline più o meno dolci che, sicuramente, danno il meglio di loro in primavera.

Ciao ami Silvio
De belles couleurs du paysage sous le ciel gris, la vue splendide sur la ville et le château au sommet de la colline, belle composition

The length of the fields is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and the colours of the village. «the cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.
