J'aime bien cette photo qui semble sortir de tes archives les plus vieilles. Le paysage de l'Ombrie ressemble pas mal à ceux de la Toscane. Le ciel est peut-être un peu trop délavé.

Ciao caro Silvio,
We are much more accustomed to seeing your wonderfully colourful photographs of the plains of Castelluccio covered in gloriously bright flowers, so this snow scene is quite a contrast!
Lovely light and soft colours, perfect exposure and your usual excellent details and sharpness.
An interesting note too!

com' e' sorpredente ed affascinante questa vista invernale di Castelluccio. Nelle foto primaverili c' e' tanta grazia nella luce e tanto splendore e ricchezza nei colori. La monocromia e la calma suggestiva di questo aspetto coperto di neve sono incredibili. Il paesaggio e' vasto e profondo, il trattore solitario offre un senso di scala stupendo. La luce e' nascosta dalle nuvole ed i colori stanno dormendo sotto la neve:) Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

Hi Silvio, A very beautiful winter scenery with calm and peaceful atmosphere and yet lonely. I like the perspective and the B/W format of this winter presentation. You have captured its best angle and its spirit. Wonderful DOF with nice b/w tones. Thank for sharing

Ciao caro Silvio,
Brrrr! Looks freezing! I like the minimalist color which is practically b&w only. Good sharpness and excellent wide angled landscape framing. Looks like it was still snowing when you took this! Have a wonderful weekend!

sembrava molto più vecchia questa foto,l'effetto della brutta giornata e del b&w ha dato questo risultato, molto interessante e di una particolare bellezza.

it is hard to believe that this landscape has been shot in color - it seems to be very black and white scenery but I guess this is the charm of the winter days without the sun. However, the whole monochromatic format works very well, especially that the fields are "busy" with the lines and different shades of grey, there are some hills so the view is not boring and flat and in addition on the top of one of them there is lovely located little town.
I truly like this one.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend

Brrr, compared to your lovely summer shots of Caselluccio this looks rather bleak in winter. But the comparison is of corse interesting and it is good to visit places in different seasons. What a contrast between summer and winter indeed.
have a great weekend
