Behind the Scene • Win $30 Cash

Abbazia di Sant'Animo, Montalcino, Italy
Canon 70D, Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS, f/8, 13sec, ISO 100

Last November I was photographing around Tuscany. After several spectacular days, the rain arrived. On Saturday morning I met a friend who would join me during the weekend. Due to the bad weather we set out to look for possible locations with better conditions for photography.

We drove across almost all the roads in Val d´Orcia under a constant rain. However, we finally decided to try it at twilight and take advantage of the lighting of this beautiful abbey. We had to park a bit far away from the location that I knew to take the picture. Then we walked for a while on the side of the road, until we reached a path that climbed uphill next to the colorful vineyards.

The earth had become mud and the rain was still falling on us. We advanced slowly due to the difficulty of the terrain. Once there, the umbrella came handy. There was little time to lose before darkness would cover the landscape. We ended up wet, exhausted from the difficult climb and with mud up to the knees, but pleased to have captured good pictures on such an unpromising day.

We wish to congratulate this month’s photographer for the 'Behind the Scene' story of this beautiful picture. This feature can be viewed in High Definition in the latest issue of the magazine
