SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // Autumn on the doorstep has made the air electrifying, not only because the skies are more and more busy (the migration to the south has begun), but also because it seems that all the animals are busy trying to snatch the last precious moments of the summer.
So many things happen, every day, to be overloaded with memories, emotions and, in the end, hundreds of photos to work on.
SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // Another bird of prey very present on almost all the Swedish territory (with the exception of the more northern mountainous areas) is certainly the buzzard (Buteo buteo): medium-sized bird of prey with wide wings and regular body structure, short neck and medium-length tail, the buzzard measures 45-58 cm with a wingspan of 110-140 cm and can reach a weight of about 1 kg for the male and 1.3 kg for the female.
INTO THE WILD, SWEDEN// Usually, and mostly for those whom loves Nature, talking about Scandinavia one can only think about uncontaminated environments, endless open landscapes, fjords and wild forests.
And talking about the animals living there, one think straight away to reindeer, bear, moose and so on.
And the moose, knows as the king of the forest, is maybe the more mysterious and legendary of all, for its size and prominence, and still its elusive way to avoid human closeness.
SKÅNE COUNTY, SWEDEN // The Skåne region, the southernmost of Sweden, is a real paradise for bird-watchers, both because here you can find 192 of the 250 bird species that breed in the country, and because it’s a very important point – probably the most important in Europe – of the European migration route and 359 different bird species have been spotted here during their passage.
ABRUZZO, LAZIO, UMBRIA, ITALY//On my second stage retracing Wandering Italia, I decided to go back to those places which had a huge emotional impact on me, definitely not only for the beauty of the landscape.
I drove from Rome in the morning towards Campotosto Lake.
At the beginning everything has been only about the astonishing view over the imposing Gran Sasso, and luckily I had the time, and a fantastic weather, to find the better spots to enjoy the view and take pictures.
