The site of the Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3,000 metres and cover 141,903 ha. It features some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes anywhere, with vertical walls, sheer cliffs and a high density of narrow, deep and long valleys.
In the north area of Veneto, surrounded by the Dolomites, is the Province of Belluno. It is a famous tourist destination where art, history and culture establish a perfect link with the wonderful surrounding environment. It is an extraordinary landscape with many small towns, impressive mountains, beautiful valleys and quiet woods.
The Dolomites are without a doubt the area’s largest attraction an extraordinary natural monumental masterpiece declared a Unesco heritage site in 2009, created over the centuries by an inimitable artist, Mother Nature. This imposing mountain range with Marmolada, Monte Antelao, Monte Civetta and Tre Cime of Lavaredo offers visitors the opportunity to admire outstanding landscapes, with big valleys close to impressive rocky mountainsides, small and big lakes that in summer are tinged with blue.
There are also many torrents, rivers and waterfalls with clean and roaring waters, thick woods that are a source of colour when the winter covers everything with white snow, creating an almost surreal landscape.
The sky too is extraordinary here, with incredible sunsets, followed by a wave of intense blue that colours the landscape, followed in turn by the dark of night, lightened by a wonderful moon and a multitude of stars. There are many ways to spend nature holidays, and also a lot of opportunities for those who want to explore the history and traditions of this land.
A tour of the villas and castles, abbeys and monasteries, archaeological sites, museums, cities and old small towns of the area provides ample opportunity for those who as well as experiencing the natural world want to discover the interesting historical and artistic heritage of this area.
Funny thing about landscapes -- we like what we like -- no matter where in the world we go. Visiting Germany and Italy, I still found that my heart skipped a beat with each RURAL landscape - despite the incredible beauty of the architecture ... I guess you can take the girl out of the 'country,' but can't take the 'country' out of the girl! LOL
Here is a painting of an Italian farmstead using traditional watercolor paints and techniques. This view appealed to me because of all the greenery and of course, the field of poppies! LOL
Have a great week!

My favorite wine is Amarone. Like all Italians, I have not met one that I did not like.
Stesso campo di ieri sera, diversa luce, nuvole diverse.
Il cielo di oggi è magnifico: spesso Aprile sa regalare delle magnifiche atmosfere di contrasto, grazie ai passaggi di fronti freddi nell'atmosfera.
Buon lunedi :)

Auf einer Wanderung in Chinque Terre blieb er unbeeindruckt in einer kleinen Gasse liegen - sein Blick - schon fast ein wenig furchterregend! :)

Atrani, Italy, 2017
Atrani is right next to Amalfi, south of Naples. Planning our trip, I obviously ignored public holidays and joined thousands of tourists... Sometimes, you just need to walk a few minutes to escape and Atrani was quiet, just as beautiful and not crowded at all.
For the history lovers amongst us. This is the inside of two nissen huts that were converted by world war 2 Italian prisoners of war. The walls and ceiling were hand painted to look as if they were tiled. Here's the Wiki link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_Chapel
io sottoscritto Melchiori Lorenzo ho cominciato con le mucche e le capre di mio nonno e ho studiato agraria, poi veterinaria specializzandomi in fecondazione. Ora ho 15 vacche da latte e 4 vitelli, 30 capre 4 cavalli, muli ed asini.
Ho una malga privata in montagna, è dura ma è bella per i suoi piccoli pascoli e il suo fascino per noi e gli animali.

" Non mi sono mai piaciuti i fuochi artificiali, la loro imitazione del vulcano in fiamme... L'ho capito in montagna, quando ho visto tra le rocce e il bosco la mia prima cascata. Mi abbagliava, mi avvicinai al suo chiasso, mi svestii e mi feci inzuppare dal pulviscolo di acqua sbriciolata. Dentro ci passava lo spettro di un piccolo arcobaleno. Amo la neve, la grandine e il salto a precipizio di una cascata. Ammiro la valanga, l'aria spostata a schiaffo, il crollo di un versante che si stacca col carico di neve. Amo l'acqua che si tuffa in discesa e non il fuoco che si scaraventa in alto e vuol salire, impennarsi e sfarinarsi in cenere"

These pretty blue flowers were growing by the track between Padworth Mill and Alfermaston Wharf. After looking them up in my nature book I ID them as Italian Alkenets.
