We were in Tuscany a couple years ago and visited a place called San Giminiano. What a magical spot! I got up veeeery early in the morning and was fortunate enough to be in the middle of this exceptionally peaceful morning. The street lights were still on in the surrounding vales and the horizon was slowly paling just before sunrise. Swathes of mist mellowed the atmosphere.
This shot has not been touched up in any way, it is straight from my Pentax istD.
