City on the Hill

This is Civita di Bagnoregio, a city perched on a hill top in Umbria. It's a "dead" city - depending on who you talk to there are only a few or no residents. It's filled with tourists by day, marveling over the city perched on top and carved into the rock of the hill, some back to Etruscan time. Slowly collapsing into the valley below, one cliffside at a time. I love the profile of the town in this image, the buildings and hill against the clouds and distant hillside.
