Tuscany 3 by pestilence Tuscany 3 by pestilence
It's been a long time since my last submission, been running after lots of things and my time is really limited nowdays.
This is another capture from the stunning Tuscan landscapes, it was funny while in Tuscany I was searching for Cappella di Vitaleta the famous photographic spot in San Quirico D'Orcia, I managed to find the spot just a few days before I left back for Greece! LOL
I was riding all day and my opportunities where limited, I needed some rest because riding, sight seeing and photography are wonderful combination but they can get you quite quick to your knees, especially if you are riding all day long with full protection (pants, jacket, helmet, gloves, boots etc) in the heat and having also to carry the photographic gear on your back!
I setup my alarm at 05:00am to get up and hit the roads, the spot was just only a few Km's away from the place we where staying, put my camera on my tripod, left the bike behind me (which relaxed me, since the bike was just over my shoulder) and waited for the light.
Another photographer from the UK joined in, made a short stop and waited with me, a few smiles and hi's and the shutter clicks just made the rest! :)

I can't believe I didn't see this one when you first submitted it mate. Lovely shot, I think we must have been standing on exactly the same bit of grass in Italy

Once again a great shot with a little issue which here is the treeline in the lower right. This single tree deserves all the attention and the trees down there are a bit too strong for me.

I have this one with the tree alone, I will try to upload it sometime, I thought of using the trees bellow as a line landing on the diagonal. Seems doesn't work that much :)

Wonderful shot. And great composition. To bad that the top of the hill goes through the head of the tree. But that is something you can't help.

Thanks mate, unfortunately a different composition would either introduce other elements in the shot (such as sky or unwanted buildings in the distance) or I would need to include more of the foreground trees.
