As we journeyed eastward from Norcia, Italy, we ascended over a mountain pass into the realm of Castelluccio, perched in the Apennine Mountain Range. In this panoramic view, the town nestled in the middle-left, cradled by a valley adorned in vibrant greenery and encircled by majestic peaks. Yet, it was the dance of shadows that stole the spotlight. Drifting from the billowing clouds overhead, they painted a spectacle, casting an ever-changing spell over the timeless landscape below. It was a moment where nature's brushstroke breathed life into the hills and valleys, a visual symphony of light and dark. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
