Belvedere, Tuscany

One of the most photographed houses in Italy. There are many many photographs of this house in the morning Tuscan mist. I wanted to capture this beautiful scene, but with a difference. I worked out that in late September the sun would rise over Pienza in the distance. After a fairly cloudy start, the sun broke through to provide me with my original take on an otherwise un-original scene. So I wasn't given mist, but I was given the most spectacular sunrise I had seen for a while to come !
