The Dying City

Giuseppe Sapori - The Dying City

This is Civita di Bagnoregio, a picturesque small town located in a isolated position. Civita di Bagnoregio is only accessible via a pedestrian bridge built in 1965.
The cause of his isolation is the gradual erosion of the hill and the surrounding valley, at the risk of the disappearance of the fraction, this is also called “the dying city“. From the viewpoint you can see Civita di Bagnoregio surrounded by hills and I assure you it is a visual spectacle. To take this HDR I climbed with my  tripod on a picnic table in order to take the shots a higher position. The exposures for this picture are 3, I edited the shots using Lighroom and Photoshop, Topaz and Nik Software filters.

it’s quite a remarkable photograph – interesting place and description. I visited a number of these isolated (not quite so much as this one) mountain villages in Abruzzo and found one or two of them to be rather depressing – so clearly were they dying through their isolation although it seems this one has different problems…..

Nice capture of an amazing scene. Nice time of day and I like the lights flanking the city’s gate.
