Pontuglia - Ceselli - Scheggino - Umbria
Ancient agricultural transit villa, then fortified in the fifteenth century, situated at an altitude of 356 meters s.l.m. near water sources that feed the homonymous ditch and an old mill. It is located along the ancient road that connected Scheggino Spoleto through Le Cese and Sensati, through the Castelmonte pass. and it is inhabited by no more than twenty people. The system of the country is triangular, with a main road on the flat and steep radial streets, often with arches that converge upwards. They are still visible traces of the fortifications and two gates. Emerge from the town some pigeon towers, which certainly had once also of defense and a watch tower. It is a remarkable stone quadrangular, covered gabled and a rose on each wall. The village of Pontuglia has followed the events of the Ceselli Castello from which it depended administratively, now part of the municipality of Scheggino.

This composition is similar to many of your photos showing ancient walls and vaults. This is slightly different thanks to the wonderful warm light and the glimpse of a garden outside. The texture of the rough walls is wonderfully captured.

Excellent capture of this nicely illuminated corner. Superb rendering of the beautiful gold stones with their lovely textural detail.

Ciao caro Silvio,
You have so much history in your part of the world that there are many places for you to photograph and share.
This shows us a very antiquated wall of random stone with three gorgeous arches. I really like how you have been able to show them with such different lighting conditions. We have one in shadow, one in half-light and one in complete sunshine, so we can compare and contrast the stones.
You have controlled the light really well, there is no oe and no complete darkness.
Excellent textural details.
My warm regards,

Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Nice taken this corner on picture, Silvio, managed to combine the outside light in fine contrast to the shaded area inside the alley.
Charming spot in the old quarter.

Cette belle porte dans un mur de pierre on ne peut pas plus épais invite à entrer et à sortir en grandeur. Un beau petit banc bien placé pour profiter du soleil.

Bonjour, cher Silvio,
C'est curieux que dès le soleil est là, l'environnement prend un air agréable et particulièrement à travers cet ensemble voûté.

Excellent light management making everything under the covered passage looking very clear while we can also enjoy the fresh green colours of the little garden and the trees a bit further away.
Very attractive composition.
Beautiful textures of the walls.
Best regards, Paul

le differenze di luci sono notevoli, ma sei riuscito a bilanciare bene il tutto.
Un bel trittico di archi, scale e panchina, un mix perfetto.

I like the warm glow of the light bouncing off the walls and adding warmth. Good sharpness and the 3 arches are well positioned on the three vertical 1/3 lines to give a strong composition. Tfs!

I really love the lighting here, it is so well managed and the warm, bright sunlight shines so beautifully through the arch. The sharpness is excellent. Great photo work.
