ITALY IN PHOTOS
When people purchase my photographs, I feel that there is so much more I would like to share than just the image. I set up this blog to portray my experiences behind the photographs, and truly hope they are enjoyed by a much wider audience than just those who wish to purchase them.

Cinque Terre are one my favorite places to go walking. They not only give you a workout, but also a scenic field day for your eyes. It can take 5 or more hours to walk the Cinque Terre from start to finish. I prefer to walk them in spring or fall, when the weather is not unbearable and there are not tourists swarming about. The summer is when I throw down a beach towel and grab my snorkling gear because the water is great - especially in Monterosso.
Italian Cat from Gavi

Tuscany? I won't even mention the fact that it has rained or was very cloudy almost every weekend for the past two years in Liguria. Where is this beautiful Italian sun that everyone dreams of? The day I took this shot wasn't too bad, but I'm hoping to get back to Tuscany again in the next month or so.

Boat in Monterosso
Monterosso (the first of the Cinque Terre heading away from Genoa and towards La Spezia). This one of the "5 lands" is one of my favorites because it has a great sandy beach and usually has the clearest, cleanest of waters that you'll find in Liguria. You can usually swim out very far and still see the bottom (despite the fact that it's sandy - somehow it doesn't get kicked up as much as other sandy beaches in Liguria).
Laura in sunflower field
Siena, Italy in mid July. Somehow, every year I have managed to miss the sunflower season in Tuscany. Last year I was lucky enough to make it in time to find this one, last miracly humid and therefore not yet wilted field. (I also missed rasberry picking season last year - it was so hot so early in the season that everything came and went in the blink of an eye!). This year I am determined to get to Tuscany at the right time to photograph some of those beautiful rolling green Tuscan hills and sunflower fields before they get dried up and burned out by the sun!!
