Description: Here is Orvieto’s silhouette as it appears at sunrise to wayfarers directed to Lake of Bolsena. A floating isle among fog’s cotton flocks. IMHO, the best hour of the day in this period: for this reason I gave this title to the photo.Nice to look at this “scenario” also in late afternoon, at sunset, when façade of main Cathedral (Duomo at right of this compo) looks like almost a mirror reflecting warm rays of falling sun. A little bit of history is useful. When arch. Lorenzo Maitani was asked for drawing plans of Duomo and to build its facade, he promised to erect the most beautiful Cathedral at that time. When this wonderful Church was ended, glad peoples of Orvieto decided to make him blind. So he was no longer able to re-build such a beautiful Church and Façade in another place of this world. When travelling around Orvieto, its Duomo and Façade appear at every corner reminding of this sad story.I don’t know if it is real (a lot of peoples talk so) or not but this Duomo is a reminder of that period around 1250-1300 (Middle Age).Hand-held camera on monopod PENTAX K 1000 and PENTAX Zoom 40-80mm set at 80. F 11. Shutter Speed: 1/125s. ISO: 400. KODAK T-MAX 400 negative BW film processed in its own developer. EPSON Scanner 3200 Perfection. File processed in Alien Skin Exposure BW. Date: Oct. 23 rd, 2013 at around 7,00 am. I hope You like it.
