Photographer's Note

A 5 years ago image, early Autumn season in the Orobian Alps, with a 200 mm zoom to the other side of the Val Seriana, at more or less 3 kms from me.
Small barns on the Ripa side of the mounts, some in the municipality of Valgoglio, some others in the Gromo one.
All located between 1.100 metwers and 1.300 meters.
Just a small unpaved road go up there.
Shepherds and farmers are every year rarely in the Alpine valleys.
A work too strong, too hard.
So hundreds and hundreds of barns are abandoned all around the Alps, and just fews were selled to tourists as second home after a long and difficult renovation, 'cause its are all preserved by the laws as historical buildings.
