The old Terrapille Farmhouse is situated on a hill facing Pienza and enjoys one of the most panoramic positions in the Orcia Valley. It is also one of the most amazing photo locations in the whole of Tuscany.
May is a good month to visit as the grass is still lush and green. Most of the fields have yet to be harvested and are edged by wildflowers.
I wanted to photograph the Terrapille Farmhouse at sunset. Arriving later than planned I was in danger of missing the last of the magical light. It was only through the kindness of two other photographers who took me in their vehicle to the best vantage point was I able to capture the picture I had dreamed about.
I had sufficient time to set up my gear before the sun disappeared behind the hills to my right. I composed the frame using the farm track as a leading line. The last minutes of golden evening light were absolutely stunning and highly enjoyable.
