Italian clouds are beautiful

I used to think that the landscapes that Italian artists painted were overdone. The clouds in particular seemed to have had the Baroque equivalent of a Photoshop color saturation enhancement. Well I’m here to report that those beautiful clouds are real. Not only does Tuscany have some of the most beautiful countryside anywhere, even the clouds are gorgeous.

The weather while I was there was varied, often cloudy and sometimes rainy, which made for some great lighting and sunsets.

Here are a few from Montepulciano.


It’s just not fair for the rest of the world.
