La mia quercia preferita in splendida veste autunnale
Nei pressi di Nottoria, a poca distanza da Norcia, vive l'albero più imponente dell'Umbria. La bellissima roverella (Quercus pubescens) ha dimensioni non eccezionali, ma del tutto ragguardevoli: 5,3 metri di circonferenza del tronco 22 metri d'altezza e la splendida chioma ha una circonferenza di oltre 30 metri, con un portamento bellissimo,

Ciao Silvio,
attratto dalla secolare quercia hai provveduto alla visita autunnale d'ossequio alla maestosa bellezza cogliendone i caldi colori e la luce fra i rami, la quercia di cui ti dicevo è un po' più grande e sicuramente più vecchia, ma più sofferente e meno maestosa.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon proseguimento di fine settimana

Bonjour Silvio,
Très belle photo de ton chêne préféré en habit d'automne. J'aime bien le cadrage que tu as choisi et le léger contrejour capté par l'image. Une très belle image automnale.
Je te souhaite une bonne fin de semaine

Buenos días Silvio,

Esplendido árbol, es hermoso, se proyecta muy bien, es acogedor. Me agrada la forma en la que la luz pasa por entre sus ramas. Bonita foto, digna de una postal. Saludos, Feliz Domingo.


Hallo Silvio
This is a sheer delight to look at this beautiful old tree filled with a variation of autumn colours. I like the way how blotches of blue sky peeps through the branches of the tree, playing hide in seek with one's eyes. I also like the sunlight in the whole scenery, and the shadow of the tree on the surface. I very much enjoyed this scenery from your hand and lens. It was just a reminder that you are just as good with this kind of photography, than with the butterflies that you spoil us with so often. Thanks for bringing autumn into my lounge, where we are currently experiencing summer here in South Africa. Best regards.

Ciao Silvio,
A fine shot of a vigorous oak in the autumn. The POV almost against the light is great and the colours of the remaining leaves shine against it. The radial pattern of the oak branches makes a nice composition too.
Thanks and have a good weekend my friend,

Dear Silvio!

I believe that the title suits the picture very well. Indeed, this Oak is a beauty and I also like to look at them in automn. At this season, they seem to be even more powerful, and your picture reflects this very well.

Kind regards


Hello Silvio,
I surprised today with the different subject:)
But wonderful view of an old tree with excellent composition and details!
TFS and regards,

Hello Silvio,
A great shot of this magnificent tree, which is a symbol of strength and longevity. Beautiful natural colors and wonderful details.

You are indeed having a late fall would it be here in America Silvio....I like the small addition of the road. It gives a certain dimension which most rarely use. I am threatening to do a couple myself. Well seen...it is grape time or has that past?

Hi and Good Morning amico Silvio,

Great capture of this old tree in a fine composition with wonderful POV/DOF and excellent clarity.
TFS and have a nice day MF!


Ciao Silvio,

Great capture with nice mood in the shot!
The colors are very natural, captured with great sharpness and from a well thought POV.

Well done!

best regards,

ciao Silvio
