Touch of light: sunset in Asciano

Colours and lights of Siena countryside

The Siena countryside is one of the most photogenic areas of Tuscany

From the Val d'Orcia to the Crete Senesi, the scenery offers landscapes that have inspired countless photographers from all around the world: rolling hills sculpted by generations of people who have cultivated the land and ancient rural architecture surrounded by cypress trees.

Jonathan Giovannini travelled the area to immortalize its colours and lights from dawn to sunset. Here are some his shots; it’s a bit of Tuscan magic.
