*Early morning mist surrounds the farmhouse at Belvedere, near San Quirico D’Orcia, Val D’Orcia, Tuscany, Italy.
I knew this scene had been photographed a million times before, so I tried to avoid this particular spot. However, the view was so magnificent, I couldn’t resist, especially when I arrived at dawn to see this very photogenic mist drifting through the valley. I felt the high contrast scene would work particularly well in Black and White, and hoped this treatment would help it stand out from the millions of other photos of this famous farmhouse.
