Intimate Landscapes Winner • Giacomo Fioretti

Corridonia, Italy
Canon 6D, Canon 70-200mm f/4L, f/11, 1/125sec, ISO 100

I took this picture in October 2017 at sunrise. This lovely lone country house is located in the middle of Marche Region countryside in Italy. This spot has become very popular in recent months and now It is one of the symbols of the beauty of Marche Region countryside.

That morning I woke up very early and I reached this location by car. It was still dark when I arrived but after about twenty minutes, the sky began to clear.

At first light I got out of my car and started assembling my gear. I was very disappointed because the sky seemed to be grey and cloudy. Resigned and sure that there would't have been a beautiful dawn, I start taking some pictures. After I photographed the scene from different angles and with different focal lengths, I started to put away my gear ready to drive back home.

Suddenly, as I was about to leave, some rays of light crossed the clouds lighting up the spot. Quickly I set up my tripod and camera and started photographing again.

This gorgeous effect of the light on the hill lasted no longer than 15 minutes. During this short period I quickly tried to capture the scene in the best way possible.

This experience keeps reminding me that nature is not only beautiful but also unpredictable. I will never forget this lesson and above all, I will never forget how things can change unexpectedly.
