Umbria landscapes
« on: March 13, 2017, 04:29:05 PM »

Some photos from the Umbria Monte Sibbilini National Park. I have selected what I really like about this location which is the rolling hills with their shapes and here in b&w. A location I really would recommend although at least temporarily it is a problem getting there as roads from Norcia are blocked due to the earth quakes last year in the autumn. But they should be open later in the year and there is likely access from other directions. The first two photos were shot in the autumn when I find the best conditions and no tourists :) The last two were shot in June when there are lots of tourists (normally) to shoot the lental fields with all the flowers.

Btw. note the Italy shaped group of trees on the last shot.

Generally I prefer your colour images, but #3 here is especially good.

These are wonderful.
They bring back fond memories of our couple of days in Castelluccio, and they tempt me to see how some of my own Sibillini shots might convert to B&W.
If I like them, I'll post in a separate thread.

I was born in the Marches side of the Sibillini, in the town of Camerino (the ancient Camerinum) which has been severely damnaged by the earthquake. When I was a boy, I spent some of my summer holidays in the salesian holiday house of Calcara (Ussita), in face of Mount Bove. I have seen on the web that it is currently uninhabitable because of the earthquake.

Here a photo of those (ancient) days, the cardigan had been lent me by a priest...

Your Umbrian shots are fully on par with your Tuscan photos…
Well done, bravo Hans.

Excellent set. I particularly like #1, with several layers of mystery.

Thanks very much for the comments. I love the rolling hills and the little village Castelluccio as it was. I hope I have inspired some to visit this area.

I can't be objective about these, but I do love them.
That is (or at least was) such a gorgeous area, and the people so nice.
