So far the weather here in Tuscany has not lived up to its reputation for sun and warmth. Does that detract from it? Not one jot for me although I will utter the caveat that if it were to be like this for another two weeks my photography would be severely compromised. Sightseeing in the medieval Tuscan hill towns is definitely an occupation for sunny days. It does mean too that we are not using the fabulous terraces this villa has.
The views from my bedroom window are wonderful though and so far each morning has been completely different:
Monday 3 September
Today Tuesday 4 September. When I took the photos this morning the light was quite dull and the photos lacked any depth or contrast so I tried an exposure fusion (three photos fused) and a tone mapping (the saturation and other aspects being altered). Here they are. I have to say that the tone mapped version (second) doesn't appeal to me as a photographic record but does have a certain interest as a picture and you can see more detail in, for example, the tree bark.
