Tuscan Twilight

On my recent trip to Italy, I was able to photograph the sunset from high atop Montelpulciano. This Tuscan hill town has a commanding view in all directions. To the west is the beautiful Val D'Orcia.

The Val D'Orcia is legendary for amazing pastoral landscapes. Winding roads leading through rolling hills and fields of wheat make for unparalleled landscape opportunities. After the sun had set, beautiful colors played across the sky and the land. I spent a long time watching the last light of day play across the land. It was a fantastic evening!

Montepulciano was recently featured in the Twilight series of movies. It is easy to see why. Less than an eighth of a mile away from this overlook was the clock tower where Edward tried to reveal himself as a vampire. A nearby cafe shows many photos of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson enjoying pastries. Fortunately, I didn't encounter any vampires...
