Photographer's Note

This one is another landscape of an area near my village, I captured it going south to Pordenone. I was driving in a road near Meduna river; a few kilometers and Meduna meets Cellina river . The particular environment around these two rivers is called"Magredi"

The upper plains in western Friuli are characterized by arid and permeable soils called "magredi", or poor soils, where even the rivers disappear and run underground to resurface farther on, in what is known as the "line of karst springs". The arid "magredi" areas are nowadays made fertile by an extensive irrigation system, and the lush area of the karst springs, with its flourishing agriculture, is characterized by natural greenery along the rivers and woods on the plains.
