Now that my project about Tuscany over the seasons is over, I have decided to start a new project: Tuscany through my eyes. Well, more or less… I am planning on publishing one or more photos of Tuscany every week, and not just some beautiful photos, but images that “match” the way I see my beautiful region at that time of the year. I will publish photos that I have taken and photos that I have not taken but I wish I had! 52 posts to show you Tuscany the way I see it and feel it. Here are the other posts in the series.
Week 9 – The light
This morning we woke up to this.
I am always amazed by the effects created by sun rays making their way through the morning clouds.
You can be sure that the clouds will dissipate when they light up the slopes of Monte Amiata.
You get to see the real beauty of the countryside: the rolling hills, the gentle valleys… all the details that go unnoticed in bright daylight.
The Val d’Orcia appears in all its splendour. No wonder it is one of the most photographed places in the world.
The fields, lit by a sun ray, look like bright green patches on a cozy blanket. They alternate with olive groves and vineyards.
The details really stand out: you could count the trees in an olive grove!
And then, all of a sudden the sun appears from behind the clouds and the details disappear in the mists and in the bright light.
