Cipressi by AndyMumford Cipressi by AndyMumford
A shot from a couple of years ago of the iconic cipresso trees near San Quirico d'Orcia, Tuscany.
This is the "classic" view of the trees, where they are sidelit from the right. I was initially reluctant to shoot from this angle because, as it was so early in the year the grass wasn't all that long and there are the various bald patches where the earth shows through. I countered this in my original submission (below) by shooting from a different angle and keeping the camera really low (something that can't be done from this side because of the nature of the terrain), but it's this view that really captures the undulating nature of the location.
It looks peaceful, but anyone who's been here will recognize that to shoot from this angle you have to be standing pretty much underneath a concrete flyover for a major road.

I've got plenty of new stuff to submit, but most of them are waterscapes, and I like to keep my submissions varied if I can, so I'm mixing up more recent shots with older ones I never got around to submitting here.

My other shot from the same location
