Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty

An afternoon in Italy in late September. All one could want from life, really.

I met my visitors in Orvieto, Umbria, and then we went to Bolsena by the lake (in Lazio), the town where I haven’t strolled yet. It was a great place for the golden hour, but then – they all are.

As for looking up – you will do that a lot in Italy. There are beasties in the architecture, plants growing out of heads and even just the sky is that killer shade of blue which mother once wanted for her bedroom curtains. It goes well with everything.

And all this was just Day One.

  1. I was going to comment on the glorious colour in your photos – but now I know it was because of the golden hour!
    So much to love in this post, Manja, it was hard for me to pick a favourite. Although “Indiana Norm” is a great shot, the archway in Orvieta is a winner. Swoon!

    1. Have them all, Joanne, no need to pick. 😉 These photos were taken (in more or less the same order) from 3.45 to 6.45 pm on a Friday afternoon. I guess on the last few sky shots the hour was really golden.

    1. Hello, Jolene! Today is again very warm, almost 30 degrees C, after a couple of days of sock weather. It’s not my Banana Joe, but from my Canadian visitors. 😉 They must be safe back by now. Thank you!

  2. “An afternoon in Italy in late September. All one could want from life, really.” I have to agree. I wouldn’t say no to curtains in that shade of blue either. Now I’ll have to drink some Italian wine as I bask in the sunshine of your photos.
