Italian terrain

One of the coolest things about traveling around Italy was seeing the landscapes of the Renaissance paintings come to life.  The terrain is soft and rolling in many places with fields and trees that seem to have changed little if at all in hundreds of years.  Here's what we saw from train and car windows as we wandered around.


  1. It's the light! I can really understand why earlier artists travelled to Italy - especially from the northern countries. How soft and warm it all looks.

  2. yeah it's the light and the beautiful aged buildings and the lack of trees. i miss england for those reasons. steven

  3. Wonderful...
    With views like this you could close your eyes and still get a great photo.
    Ever photo could be a painting.

    The light is lovely, all the colors and the beautiful trees.

    cheers, parsnip
