Amazing clouds, Mary! A wonderful contrast to the serene landscape below. Really nice distant views of the mountains and closer views of a field- makes a fine composition and interesting contrasts in textures. Lovely shot!

Wonderful clouds building up there Mary. As Cindy said, a lovely contrast to those rolling hills. A must to view large.
Make your life spectacular!

I love the way you appreciate the effect that light can have on a landscape, and you use that to maximum effect in your photos, Mary! Great clouds and view with the effects of the sunlight providing beautiful highlights.

I'm not sure I've seen pictures of this part of Italy before.  The clouds make this one for sure, perhaps just a hair too much contrast in the clouds.
