Under a Tuscan Sun...and Clouds

Uploaded: April 10, 2004


Taken in San Gimignano, Italy last week on a mostly cloudy day. 70mm. Slight tinkering with contrast though the clouds created a natural pattern of light and shade on the ground (I had to wait for the clouds to pass over just right). If you look closely, you can see sheep in the distance (as tiny white dots).
