Misty Morning in Tuscany
This image is bang on theme – it could only be a summer landscape – and beautifully composed. There’s a detailed, sunrisewarmed foreground to place the viewer in the scene, then the mistier valley below. The photographer has relied on the mist and cooler light to soften the valley, rather than aperture, so it’s possible to pick out details such as lines in the crops or lights on the farmhouse, though they’re very subtle.
