Weekly Photo Challenge: Patterns

This week, the Weekly Photo Challenge is patterns. I just couldn’t get started, as I wanted to try and find at least one unusual pattern, and decided I would give it a miss, then…Bingo! I was sorting through some images and saw some that would fit the bill.

So we’re off to Italy, with a couple of images of interesting field patterns on the Piano Grande in Umbria, fields in Lazio and Tuscany, a painted ceiling at the Palazzo Chigi  Saracini in Siena and an old wall at the Villa Lante.
Enjoy! And please let me know what you think..

  1. These are just gorgeous pictures. I think I like the fields in the top let the most. But all are really great.

    • Many thanks for your comment, much appreciated. Glad you liked them! Those fields were something else, very striking. In fact, the whole of the Piano Grande (in Umbria) is.

  2. Very beautiful shots!

  3. I love detail and pattern; you did a wonderful job in capturing that in your photos.

  4. I didn’t realise a lentil field could be so beautiful.

    These are wonderful interpretations of patterns. Very nice pictures – I thought the fields from the air would be my favorite but then the other ones were also favorites, for different reasons.

    • To think I nearly didn’t post for this challenge, and I’ve probably had the most comments on this! Hey ho! By the way, the lentil fields look like they’re from the air, it was just from the road above…just the most amazing place. A hamlet in the middle of a vast plain, where apparently they still ring the church bells on foggy days to guide the shepherds home.

        Don’t you just love places like this? We have stumbled upon many places like this that are – as you say, amazing.

    • Thanks for visiting and commenting! The images must have worked if it makes you want to see the place, so I’m pleased….I’m always seeing images other people have posted and wishing I could go to the places….

  10. The first picture is my favorite. Great work.

  11. That Siena ceiling draws my attention every time I go there, and the Crete Senesi and Val d’Orcia are mind-blowing. I love your glimpses, they look like what I look at in Tuscany. 🙂
