[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A typical Tuscan villa available for agro-tourism. We spent a week here, really enjoying the wine and olive oil produced on the property. The kids loved the pool.

This shot was taken on an evening walk.

Hello Mike,
A very well composed image!
I can see the shadows getting long and beginning low light, but still rich colours...
Wonderful deep blue sky, good lines in composition!

:-) OK-

Hi Mike, Beautiful example of the richness of late afternoon colours. Like the effect of the CP filter too. Looks like a marvelous place to stay. Well composed and sharp. TFS. Pat.

Hi Mike. Very fine composition showing how lovely Tuscany is as a place for living, painting and taking photographs. The blue sky really enhances this one. TFS. Murray.

Hi Mike,
This is so iconic of Tuscany. Good saturation and contrast. The lines of the vines draw you right into this image, it's quite dynamic. And well balanced. Looks like the only thing missing here is me, and a glass of vino tinto!
