Getting Out Early to Take Advantage of the
Morning Light in Tuscany Really Pays Dividends
All of the above images were made by simply driving the rustic “stradas biancas,” or white roads, right around sunrise near the town of Siena in the region of Tuscany, Italy. Pulling off to the side of the road when I saw something interesting and spending a few minutes making these shots, was time well spent.
In the end I thought that presenting them in black and white would serve the images best.
