Architecture in Orvieto
After a very successful weekend in Venice I am pleased to be back in Orvieto enjoying the town yet again. This assignment plays on the emphasis of architecture found in Italy. I chose to take pictures of the Duomo di Orvieto, but tried to do it a little differently with the lighting. As always, let me know what you think!
In the early morning the sun rises over the Duomo di Orvieto on Monday, June 13, 2011, in Orvieto, Italy. The Duomo began construction in the 1300s and took over a hundred years to finish.
In the afternoon the Duomo di Orvieto sits in the sun on Monday, June 13, 2011, in Orvieto, Italy. The horizontal black and white stripes where popular around the time plans were drawn up by Antonio Federighi in the 1400s.
As the day reaches an end, the late afternoon sun falls on the Duomo dis Orvieto on Monday, June 1, 2011, in Orvieto, Italy. It is estimated the cathedral stands seven stories tall.
