On our journey eastward from Norcia, Italy, we ascended over a mountain pass into the embrace of Castelluccio, a small high-altitude village in the Apennine Mountain Range. Nestled in the middle-left, the town held its own amidst the vast landscape of rolling greenery and towering peaks. Yet, it was the clouds above that stole the show, casting graceful shadows upon the land below. A dance of light and dark unfolded, turning the mundane into magic. Castelluccio stood as a quiet witness to this ever-changing spectacle, a testament to the beauty that nature paints in the sky and upon the earth. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
