Castelluccio è una frazione del comune di Norcia (PG).
Il paese si trova in cima ad una collina che si eleva sull'omonimo altopiano, uno dei più vasti dell'Italia centrale ed inserito nel Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini. L'altezza di 1.452 m s.l.m. ne fa il centro abitato più elevato dell'Appennino Umbro-Marchigiano e di tutti gli Appennini. Di fronte ad esso si erge imponente la sagoma del Monte Vettore (2.478 m).

La presenza dell'uomo nella zona è testimoniata sin dall'epoca romana, con il rinvenimento di alcuni oggetti in terracotta presso la Fonte di Canatra, in località Soglio. Inoltre, nelle fondamenta di una casa furono rinvenute nei secoli passati diverse monete romane risalenti al periodo dell'imperatore Claudio II il Gotico (III secolo), e lungo la strada che conduce a Forca di Presta, si trovò anche la tomba di un soldato romano. Il nucleo attuale risale al XIII secolo, anche se alcune ricerche tendono a retrodatarne la fondazione.
L'economia del paese è strettamente legata all'attività della pastorizia, che ancora costituisce una buona parte degli introiti degli abitanti. Ad essa va aggiunta l'agricoltura, con la produzione di prodotti tipici quali le famose lenticchie di Castelluccio. Il turismo è presente tutto l'anno: nel periodo invernale, la località di Forca Canapine ospita impianti di risalita funzionanti per attività sciistiche, mentre nel periodo estivo l'escursionismo attrae un gran numero di appassionati.

Wow, your slight underexposure really makes these red flowers pop. The sky suggests that you may need to clean your camera sensor. You clone out the dust bunnies but it is not always easy to do so and leave it looking natural. Nice shot however.

Hi Silvio
The weather certainly didn't do you any favours for this photo. But you have made the best of it and captured a very pleasant image. Lovely bright colours in the foreground that lead the eye to an interesting background. There are a couple of spots in the sky that could be cleaned out.

Bom dia Silvio, caro amigo,
Uma dessas fotos sobre que a gente só pode dizer uma coisa,perfeita.
Bela composição.
Um abraço do

Hi Silvio,
A lovely perspective of this village on the mountain.
I like the floral BG which leads to such a DOF.
Good light management in this rather difficult lighting condition.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Silvio
The bright red flowers appear so attractive. There is a feeling of peace and tranquillity with this kind of lighting management.

Hello Silvio,
Yes, I agree about the slight underexposure and you again show here that you are a top class photographer. I really looked for something to criticize you on, constructively of course, but I could not find anything. Well done my friend. What a lovely view.

Hello Silvio, the beautiful field of poppies leads our eyes into the scene, and up to the village clinging to the hill.
Good DoF.
The grey cloudy sky makes a good contrast with the bright red flowers.
Tfs, regards Jean.

No doubt I should prefer this landscape under a bright sun ; the incredible Castellucio would maybe prefer too, but you have chosen a new original point of view

Hello Silvio

Almost the feel of a land in a children's storybook. The flowers fading away into the hill gives a pleasant atmosphere in the image. The village on the top of hill finishes the POV nicely. Well done on a fantastic view.
