Tuscany in fall
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:02:14 pm »

I live Tuscany in late autumn. This photo is from one of the last days in October this year. This year it was very dry and almost no green in the fields. The fields had been meticulously combed by the farmers.

Superb shot. Yes, this year it was unusually dry but this also gives a different landscape (vs rainy fall).
Well done!

Good job Hans! I was there for Workshops both twice mid- and end- of October, when I got very uncooperative weather and blue skies, and a third time last weekend, when the weather was just great instead :) It was a very strange fall, very warm late in the season. I loved it how you composed Terrapille and the "Gladiator's road" leaving the sky out, I assume it was not a very conducive sky that evening and you made very good use of the conditions you had :)

Best regards,

Excellent! Just the right light. It seems to be a elevated view point. Is that a hill or what?

It really makes me want to get back to Tuscany. My one visit was in the spring, and now I would love to be there in the fall.

Excellent composition and light, as always. On a sad note, we will see the impact of a dry and not-normal warm season soon...

Thanks Vieri, my workshop was at the very end of October and into November and we had great sky for some of the days. We did not have rain until the last morning when it was poring down. I went to Abruzzo with a part of the group on a private workshop and we had dramatic weather with rain and snow, so I assume Tuscany had a lot of rain during that week too. Which is really what was needed for the crop to grow. I did not go back and went straight back to Denmark. The composition I did was not due to lack of sky but the kind of compositions I do a lot in Tuscany of only including land in different shapes and formations and I especially like sunrise when the sun starts to hit the land and outline the shapes and the colours.

Thanks. It was shot from the wall around Pienza where you can overlook the landscape and shoot the various hills and roads like the Gladiators Road in the picture. It is quite different than going down to shoot closer, which we also did.

Thanks Eric, I have the fall in early November as my favourite for Tuscany. Of course, I love spring in May, but the late autumn with the fields that have been ploughed and flattened and sowed with the new crop is amazing. Normally there is greenery from the new crop coming up but this year no rain had fallen and it was very dry. But it was still fantastic and all fields were ploughed this time which is unusual.

Thanks Paulo, but the rain came when we left Tuscany and I think the crop is growing now like crazy. But the outlook maybe problematic for decades into the future. In hope to live long enough to see this place many times in the future.

A variation on the picture above is the following (not a crop of the above).
