The sky above the Sella group

The sky above the Sella group - Gardena Valley.

This is post number 2500 and joins hundreds of other bloggers skies at SkyWatch Friday.


Poem in Ladin language by my friend Roland Verra. (read the translation below).


Desbiech i raies
dl surëdl tardif
iust dan desmunté

Lum ndureda
danter ciel y prà
tla sëira cunedida

L s'auza l vënt
coche l sust de n'ëila

Ntëur me via
dut scota
ora de nia


At twilight

The oblique rays
of the late sun
just before it goes down

Gilded light
between heaven and meadow
in the announced evening

The wind soars
like a sigh
of a woman in love

All around me
is silence
at once

What a gorgeous sight to see those gilded mountain tops.

Espectacular o "jogo" de luz-sombra, excelente trabalho.
Um abraço e bom fim-de-semana.

Ciao, un bel photoblog il tuo, uno dei pochissimi presenti in Italia. Un paradosso la lingua non italiana ma forse questo paradosso lo rende internazionale. Leggibile a ogni latitudine. Il gruppo montagnoso porta il nome di un piemontese come me. Forse sai chi è.
