I am sure you'll agree Steve has really captured the Hamlet on one of those mysterious, misty winter morning. Steve's handiwork shows the timeless ambience the hamlet exudes in the shoulder season.

And in Steve's words.
"The picture for me encapsulated the essence of life in the Tuscan hills, - a hard hewn life characterized by the angular juxtaposition of stone and tile, but softened by the morning light and mist rising from the valley - a promise of refreshed but bucolic warmth to come. The picture was taken using a Canon 5D MkII with a 28-300mm zoom at F5.6 to accentuate the foreground while blurring the background.
