Landscapes of Italy

Lone tree against stormy sky in Tuscany, Italy.Italy-5-3 It's been a while since I posted here. I promised I would get back to my trip to Tuscany, and finally I have time to fulfill my promise to you. I went to Italy for a landscape photography workshop with one of my favorite photographers, Jim Nilsen. Jim and his wife Magrit have been doing photo tours for a number of years and are fabulous guides.  

I wasn't looking for a real "how-to" workshop, as I already know how to shoot. I really wanted the kind of trip Jim & Magrit offer - camaraderie, beautiful locations, and sharing knowledge. Our trip included photographers at many different skill levels, so not only was I able to learn from Jim, but I was also able to assist other participants at times, which was fun for me.

The thing I appreciated most, though, was the opportunity to shoot places I have never been, and to have that guidance from Jim about what time of day was going to best and where to go. He had pre-scouted everything, yet was flexible enough to stop when any of us saw a moment we wanted to capture.

Enough talking. Let me just share some of my landscapes captured during this tour.
