One Tuscan Hill in Five Photos

It was just a month ago….outside my window at Casale di Valle,  down and across a string of vinyards, there was this one Tuscan hill crowned with these Lombardy poplars, heavy in personality.

My Shot of the Day: Hiking for the Virgin from Bagnères-de-Bigorre

  I walked straight up the mountain out of  Bagnères-de-Bigorre at noon. The last of the autumn leaves were so thick they were like ice under my feet where the trail went steep; which was most places.  I saw a Bearded vulture, then a fox, then I passed over a small, muddy stream framed in blue […]

My Shot of the Day: Midnight Duck. Helsinki Finland

Tonight I set out to capture the Aurora Borealis from the coast near the Mehlahti section of Helsinki Finland – but that didn’t work out so well. A brief snowstorm appeared from some thick, pink clouds and my exhausted, jet-lagged brain just gave up. As I trudged back to my friend Rasmus’ flat I saw […]
