Montalcino, Italy (August '09): A black & white take on spectacular summer afternoon in Tuscany. This was taken by the pool at Castello Banfi Il Borgo. A two-stop underexposure allowed me to get the shadows of this lone Cypress tree contrasted to the bright sunshine, clouds and hills in the distance. Best way to relax is with a big Brunello.
