Opening in the Sky - Vitaleta, Tuscany, Italy

The Chapel of Our Lady of Vitaleta is a small sacred building is located on a hilltop in the village Vitaleta on the road that connects San Quirico d'Orcia to Pienza. It is famous, as it once was the home of a Renaissance statue of the Madonna that was sculpted by the artist Andrea della Robbia. The chapel is on private land and is reachable by walking on a long dirt road thanks to the owners allowing access to the chapel. We had been shooting the chapel from all angles and, as the evening got darker, the skies opened up creating a heart shaped opening that seemed to float above the chapel.
