Just because

I was driving between villages when I looked up to see this view. I stopped the car to take some photos. The fragrance in the mountains is heavenly. There had been some rain and the sun had just come out, so everything was fresh and clean.

Take some time to drive through the mountain villages. This is from the San Cassiano road.

 

Seasons

Just before I left Bagni di Lucca in November I went with friends into the glorious mountains above Montefegatesi. It was a beautiful autumn day.

We came upon a shepherd with his well kept goats. I love to see the old traditions carried on…long may it continue.

When I return tomorrow the landscape will be quite different. I look forward to another visit to the mountains.
