Siena Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Siena) is a medieval church in Siena, Italy, dedicated from its earliest days as a Roman Catholic Marian church, and now dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta (Holy Mary, Our Lady of the Assumption).

9/12 in the group series 12 Months Of The Same Image.

 

Dark skies are approaching again (2.45p.m) after a morning of mixed weather. It was still a nice temperature so we went for a walk around the lake, 2 miles. The sunshine finally returned and we were treated to a beautiful sunset that night, the sky was on fire!

 

BTW...that's hubby walking down the steps, I photo bombed him :))

Mamma Mia! Here's a minimalistic yet powerful photo I edited of Corno Neo in Italy original photo was taken by Luca Zanon.

Changed up the colours in this one and tried my best to make those hill peaks stand out.

Back from a brief trip to paradise… Northern Italy and the Alps. Managed to snap a few pics during this “traveler’s tour,’ which is always a challenge since nobody waits for tripod users; hence all shots are handheld.

 

Dolomites mountain group is in the eastern section of the northern Italian Alps, The range comprises a number of impressive peaks, 18 of which rise to more than 10,000 feet. The highest point is the Marmolada (10,964 feet, the southern face of which consists of a precipice 2,000 feet high.

 

The range and its characteristic rock take their name from the 18th-century French geologist Dieudonné Dolomieu, who made the first scientific study of the region and its geology.

 

Geologically, the mountains are formed of light-colored dolomitic limestone, which erosion has carved into grotesque shapes. The resulting landforms include jagged, saw-edged ridges, rocky pinnacles, screes (pebble deposits) of limestone debris, deep gorges, and numerous steep rock faces at relatively low levels.

 

Glaciated features occur at higher levels; 41 glaciers lie in the region. Many of the lower and more gentle scree slopes were once forested; only patches of woodland remain, however, interspersed with grassy meadows.

The temple of Portunus, which has also been called Temple of Fortuna Virilis - but the dedication to the harbour-god Portunus is now the generally favoured one. This is one of the best preserved Roman temples there is. The building that still stands dates to around 80-70 B.C. - replacing an older temple on the same spot. The temple survived because it was converted to a church (St. Mary - in around 872) and in the 16th century it was given to an order of Armenian monks who kept it in reasonable good shape.

Passed by Castiglione del Lago on the Lake Trasimeno on my way to Rome and spent a night there. An absolutely beautiful place!

 

The Trasimeno lake, located in Umbria, is the fourth biggest lake in Italy, and it's an endorheic lake, meaning water flows to it but not from it to the sea - which makes the water level fluctuate quite a lot.

This man did a real good job!!!

Perugia is a beautiful city, the main town in Umbria, City University but unfortunately another record. It is considered one of the major Italian cities of drug dealing. A dubious distinction: (

There is still much to do to ourselves off this label. Basically today, finding drugs in Perugia is one of the simplest things in the world. Because the dealers turn unpunished and are easily identified by anyone, so that the question arises that the ordinary person is "if everyone knows who they are because the police do not intervene?"

Examples such as Verona, that in five years they have cleaned up the state of deterioration that was wandering the streets of the center, can give the assurance that something can be done, if you want.....

Luigi Zortea, 66 anni, per tre legislature sindaco di Canal San Bovo, paese trentino nella zona del Primiero. Ha ideato il premio di natalità e nuzialità per frenare lo spopolamento del Vanoi. In politica da sempre, in origine con i socialisti, oggi in area Pd, è stato anche assessore alla Sanità del Comprensorio Primiero e a lui si deve la convenzione con l'Usl di Feltre.

This is my 6th shot in my second series 12 Months Of The Same Image.

 

Today was a day of dodging the showers in my 'local park'. Stormy skies can be seen approaching the Italian Gardens and I've got my brolly at the ready! Large areas around the lake have been sown with wildflowers, a proud Swan shows off her five signets and Georgina the park cat, head of pest control, is snoozing in the sun, just out of sight to my right. Georgina is a black cat who enjoys a fuss from the visitors, quite a popular puss.

 

Events in the park, Sunday 26th June -

Pull up a deckchair and listen to the sounds of Birmingham Brass Band.

or

Take the Capability Brown Tour.

The Trentham Estate - one of Brown's most celebrated successes during the 18th century - has undertaken one of the biggest parkland projects in Britain. The project has restored the 'lost' Brownian landscape throughout Trentham Gardens to celebrate his tercentenary, happening this year.

  

For this shot I used my little Sony RX100M3 with a ND8 52mm filter attached.

Venice Italy.. from 2014..I have soo many pictures of places I've been in the past 2 years never had the time to post them.. wish everyone a great Sunday!

Italian Gardens at Trentham Gardens, Staffordshire. Seen on a hot and sultry August day. I headed for a seat in the shade under the trees by the lake after taking this shot, still too hot for me, even at 4pm in the afternoon! Possible thunderstorms were forecast for our area of Middle England last night but none appeared. Today (Thursday) the sun didn't peek through at all, just grey skies and heavy rain. Oh well, at least I don't have to water the flowers tonight!

 

8/12 - August, for the group 12 Months Of The Same Image.
