Ambrosini

Just off the shoreline of Passignano sul Trasimeno (the town Passignano on the shore of lake Trasimeno) is this intriguing sculpture. As I happened upon it, the elements conspired to provide some interesting lighting. So I obliged by snapping a photo.

From the little I’ve been able to piece together on the interwebs, it is a memorial to the test pilots for Ambrosini, the famous Italian aircraft manufacturer (source: here, here, here, and here). In the background to the right of the sculpture can be seen Monte Cetona, a landmark in this area.

    Looks like a rocket launch post. I like the rays breaking through in the back.

    I can feel the atmosphere exuding from your fine composition that works spectacularly well in black and white…

    The mood of the lighting is terrific, and the setting of the sculpture unique. Fantastic image Adrian, a beautiful eye-catcher! Great monochrome treatment I must add too :^)
