Tree at sunset (location: Giare, Mira, close to Venice). Within 20 minutes drive from my place, I can get to the south coast of Venice's lagoon. This area is characterized by extensive agricultural activities, which are the first ones you can find getting out from downtown. During winter time, therefore, this is a good place to enjoy nature for a little while, and it's within easy reach from the city. The very cold and clear air of the late winter gives you a lot of stunning burning skies, with warm tones which have to be interpreted with a good post production. Leafless vegetation lets you spot some landscape's elements, like this silhouette of a big tree taken in all its naked majesty.
