Congratulations. Beautiful scene and very well captured.
I have just recently returned from Tuscany myself but did not enjoy such good light as you have got here when it was required. Can`t wait until I go back there again though.
Well done.

oh yes.... fantastic!
Thanks to everyone for the clicks and kind comments and to Peter for the HC which is greatly appreciated.

I visited this location at dawn over several days and this was one of the the best results. Timing was fairly critical to get the right amount of light on the hilltops. A polariser was used to saturate the colours. Exposure was f8 - the shutter speed was irrelevant as I used a tripod. I chose this vantage point as I thought the elements came together well. Thanks for all your encouraging comments - much appreciated.

Hi Brian - (you'll see from above that I really like the photo) I've just a quick question: the mist has a surreal look... Is that the result of a very long exposure? (an ND grad perhaps?) Is it taken earlier than the shot on your website (presumably it's the same morning)?
Just very interested as I spent 4 dawns in almost exactly the same spot
All the best
Sandy,the above image is the same one as on my website but with a bit of enhancement by me. Like you I spent several dawns at this much photographed site and the conditions, whilst good, were never perfect (are they ever?) Will post another Belvedere shot in the next day or two. Thanks a lot for your comments.

Thanks Brian - I think the effect is excellent. I am still useless in Photoshop and am somewhat jealous of your skills !
