A Late Summer Sunrise and Morning

genius loci umbria - sunrise

An intense, late summer sunrise greeted me at 6:40 AM.  By 9:00 AM the breakfast portico was flooded by the most gorgeous sunlight and warmth imaginable!

How to resist lingering over breakfast on the sun-drenched portico?

The valley mist dissipated as a light morning dew lingered on the lawn and flowers.

The rarefied, dream-like light and a caress of a breeze danced blissfully in the fields of vineyards.
