I’ve been to this location at least a dozen times now, and each time it is different. I love that. The new groves of olive trees are adding texture to the sloped around the house, and the foreground field had beautiful purple-rose colors of clover. It added a lot to the scene, along with the soft ground mist from morning dew. We photographed around Pienza for two days and now, we’re in Umbria, having fun visiting the hill towns of this region. Afternoon cloudy skies have meant afternoon light has eluded us to some degree, but we’re finding plenty to photograph regardless. Perugia is amazingly quiet at night, for being a university town, so sleep has been easy with open windows. Heading to Assisi this afternoon to explore and photograph through the later light of the day.
Molto Bene!!!!!! Looks like time stands still out there.
Grazie, Kalani! Yes, time does sort of stand still in this area of Italy – that’s why I love it so much and will be going back again in spring 2013. Can’t get enough of the area…
Such gorgeous tones! I’d love to be sitting there. Nice one.
It was a peaceful morning – but I always feel guilty waking up the dogs in the area around us at 5:15 AM – because then they wake up the people and well, Italians are not typically early risers – even farmers are not up THAT early!
Is this the location called Belvidere? On the road from Pienza to San Querico?
Yes, JB – There are two good views of it, this is one of them.
Absolutely breathtaking…lovely color and great mood…
Thanks, Nancy – we were lucky to have a little ground mist and the blooming clover this year!
Beautiful image, Brenda. Italy has so many picturesque places, it’s a photographer’s paradise. Looking forward to seeing more of Italia through your lens. Enjoy!
Thanks, Lin – it has been an interesting trip regarding internet access – frustrating connections in Perugia disallowed uploading more pics easily – and there’s little time anyway when you’re on the go – but I’m home now and will sort through and share pics soon.
Beautiful image I only wish I could join you there.
Thank you Ian – it would be great to have you join us at some point – 2013 perhaps?? 🙂
Beautiful photo, Brenda.
Thank you, Fred!
