Our views have never been so beautiful
Thanks to a summer which had very high temperatures the Siena countryside has a moment of dazzling beauty. The Val d’ Orcia (A World Heritage UNESCO site) and the Crete Senesi are even more beautiful than usual at the moment.
They look like a painting by a Sienese painter from the fourteenth century. The countryside has never looked more beautiful. The land which has been ploughed ready for sowing the wheat looks like velvet, the tracks from the tractors look like rows of embroidery running across the material and then the colours – the hues and tones are even more stunning than usual and look as if they have been filtered and sharpened to incredible shades. At sunset, the beauty of the countryside truly touches your soul. For those who love landscape photography it is a unique opportunity to capture a stunning shot.
Soon this late summer hot autumn weather will finish and the colours of our
hills will return, as they always do, to a different beautiful winter landscape, it will be lovely but not as breathtaking as the views which we are seeing at the moment. Come and visit us now and enjoy the views with us before they change again!
