Castelluccio è una frazione del comune di Norcia (PG).
Il paese si trova in cima ad una collina che si eleva sull'omonimo altopiano, uno dei più vasti dell'Italia centrale ed inserito nel Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini. L'altezza di 1.452 m s.l.m. ne fa il centro abitato più elevato dell'Appennino Umbro-Marchigiano e di tutti gli Appennini. Di fronte ad esso si erge imponente la sagoma del Monte Vettore (2.478 m).

Inoltre, nelle fondamenta di una casa furono rinvenute nei secoli passati diverse monete romane risalenti al periodo dell'imperatore Claudio II il Gotico (III secolo), e lungo la strada che conduce a Forca di Presta, si trovò anche la tomba di un soldato romano. Il nucleo attuale risale al XIII secolo, anche se alcune ricerche tendono a retrodatarne la fondazione.

Hi Silvio,

A very subtle toned scene. I love the minimal section of small flowers adding to the foreground, it acts as a starting place to extend into the vast, open view. A beautiful scene with so much expanse.
Best wishes for the coming year.

Love the mood you have captured in this amazing landscape shot, Silvio!
the colors are lovely and details are fantastic.
Well caught contrasts and DOF in this scene.
Nice job!


Hi Silvio,
A very beautiful view. The position of the flower in the fg balance perfectly with th mountain and clouds. I do feel that the white balance is off. The colors are a bit too warm giving the clouds a slightly yellow cast. Setting your WB cooler, will create white clouds, a crisp sky and still good colors in the landscape.

Hello Silvio,
Nice to see your pictures...A wonderful photo taken from a very good angle and POV. Exceptional quality....Outstanding details, colors and perfect focus. This superb landscape reminds me the nice, warm summer days.....Thanks for sharing this beautiful landscape.
