It’s Spring your favourite season to shoot landscapes? Fabulous Outdoors

It’s been a very temperamental winter over the European Alps, lots of snow has fallen, followed by rapid temperature change. Suddenly Spring arrives with it’s beautiful clear skies, white clouds blown by the wind over the mountains, stunning sunrises and sunsets to be photographed.
It’s definitely my favourite season to shoot landscapes, but I also love Spring for the awakening of nature. Birds happily singing and busy flying to feed their little ones calling for food from their nest and other animals running around with their new borns. Sunrises and sunsets are pretty good to be captured all year round indeed, but in the Alps or in their proximity, you can still get the snow on the peaks in contrast with the green landscape at a lower altitude. At the same time, you don’t have to freeze yourself as you do in wintertime going up before the sunrise to set your gear for the shoot.

For this particular shoot, we were out for one of my photo-walks around the lakes as the sun was about to set creating these beautiful reflections in the water.

Valeggio sul Mincio is a village in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 120 kilometres (75 miles) west of Venice and about 25 kilometres (16 miles) southwest of Verona. It is crossed by the Mincio river.

————————————————
History:
Archaeological excavations in the Mincio valley include a Bronze Age settlements, some tombs dating to the Iron Age and some findings associated with the Etruscan civilization. A large Celtic necropolis, found in 1984 still partly buried under the current town, would prove the presence of that people from the 4th century AC and the 1st century DC.

The creation of the villages of Valeggio and Borghetto dates to the Lombard rule in northern Italy. The monastery of Santa Maria was founded here, on the Mincio shore, was founded here in the 12th century; later it was a priory of the Knights Templar. The large medieval fortifications which characterize Valeggio (Scaliger castle, the Visconti Bridge and the Serraglio difensive line) were built between the 13th and the 14th centuries. In 1405 Valeggio became part of the Republic of Venice, and subsequently lost its strategic role, becoming an agricultural center and a silkworms trading market.

After the fall of the Republic of Venice in 1797, Valeggio was included in the Cisalpine Republic. Later it was part of the Italian Republic (1802-1805) and, after some decades under the Austrian rule, of the newly unified Kingdom of Italy.

An evening in Marostica 

Marostica is a beautiful Medieval town in the province of Vicenza, Veneto region of northern Italy. It’s mostly popular for its yearly “living chess” event that is held in the central square.

Therefore the square is named “Piazza degli Scacchi” ( Chess square ) As you can see in the above image, the square shapes in the pavement, making a chess table.

It’s early October as I wander around the town, and temperature are still mild so that people enjoys sitting out for an aperitif or dinner.

You can really feel the Medieval atmosphere as you walk in the old town contained inside big walls.

On a quiet mid-week evening out of peak touristic season, the lack of noise and cars makes you really feel as you were gone back in time and I think this is great.

Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region and birthplace of the Renaissance, is home to masterpieces of art and architecture. One of its most iconic sites is the Florence Cathedral, with its terra-cotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and bell tower designed by Giotto. The Galleria dell’Accademia displays Michelangelo’s “David,” while the Uffizi Gallery exhibits preeminent works such as Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.” (via Wikipedia )

Evening comes in the fields of #Piemonte #Italy

Situated at the foot of the Alps, this area of Piemonte is a beautiful land of natural contrasts. Colourful agricultural fields, surrounded by lakes, hills and mountains in the background.

The temperamental Spring weather, with still occasional snow falls on the surrounding mountains, creates continuous temperature changes. This generates a thermal wind effect, leaving us to enjoy the beautiful clear sky.

Mountain Encounters.. Incontri di Montagna.. #Stambecchi #Bouquetins #Cabra #Ibex  

The beautiful Gran Paradiso National Park in Italy. Located in the Valle d’Aosta / Piemonte regions at the border with France, it can be accessed both ways. For this walk, I went up the ‘Piemontese way’ through the Valle Orco that ends in Ceresole Reale – Col del Nivolet. The amazing landscape and the pretty much absence of ‘modern life noises’, it makes you feel really close to nature.

Been a National Park also means that it is constantly monitored to help the wild animals survive and to prevent hunting. You realise the great job guardians do as, if you move quietly and respectful, you can get real close to the animals without disturbing them too much or to cause them being scared of you.
