Val d'orcia, Tuscany, Italy. 0515 am, July 2013.
I woke up early to capture the sunrise in Pienza. While driving there in the early morning darkness I noticed these fields with the shimmering sky in the background. I stopped by the roadside and wandered down the dew wet field trying to find a composition that worked. Gradually the sky was colored with this wonderful yellow, red, lavender hue and lit up the fog in the bottom of the valley. I sat up my gear and pressed the trigger in total awe of what this beautiful landscape has to offer.
