The Sky Is Too Big

November skies above Ortodonico
The weather forecast for tomorrow isn't good, so hubby suggested
that we spend today making the most of the summer like
weather & head out in Bianca, our Land Rover, with
our cameras. So at 10.30 we were out of the door, in
the car & off up the mountain.

First stop was Sven & Helle's house; they've just had the
original grindstones from the olive press that
used to be housed in their former ruin returned
to make a garden feature

Then we headed for Montecorice, called in at AgriCilento to buy
a bottle for our olive oil then set off south through Agnone 
before heading slightly inland & up into the mountains.
When we reached Ortodonico we decided to park &
have a bit of an explore of this 'paese' which was the
capital of the municipality until 1927.

It's where I took the top pic in this blog post - 
of the same mountain we can see from Il Sogno, 
but it was nice to view it from a different & closer
And that's when it again hit me that the skies here
seem so vast, it's hard to capture all that the
eye can see on a camera.
Coming back home, the point hit home even more -
we had a double rainbow & although we could see
both ends of the inner arc, my camera
couldn't capture it all.
Somewhere over the rainbow
