Afternoon up on the hills of Apulia

It was time for a gorgeous drive along the winding streets of the undulating hills among Brindisi, Bari and Taranto provinces. When we left the city of Lecce, the weather was nice and mild, indeed it was 26° C. Later on, after one hour and a half of driving, the tempearature was around 22° C and the sky had a light veil of clouds, which enhanced the mellowness of the soil and the honeyed palette of colors that nature uses to offer as gift during the Autumn season.

Once more we witnessed a masterwork of nature. Reverberating golden light and pink streakings painted the sky above ploughed fields, these latter as powerful expression of hard work and daily life in the surrounding area. That modern view of a rural frame, which reminded of the meticulous telling of great artists about authentic life in the countryside.

Wishing everybody a beautiful weekend!

A dominant impulse on encountering beauty is to wish to hold on to it, to possess it and give it weight in one’s own life. There is an urge to say ‘I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me’. ” – Alain de Botton
