Tuscan Layers - Chiusure, Province of Siena, Italy

Tuscany’s landscapes are quite diverse and are a primary reason that visitors flock to this region in Italy. Rolling hills with perfectly placed villas both large and small dot the scene. Trees are planted across the land with enough space between them to create patterns of all kinds. Of course, the ever-present cypress trees seem to lift themselves to the sky. Often the cypresses are planted on the top of the hills that accentuate the patterns of the landscape. If you are lucky like I was, you will get there when the setting sun bathes the Tuscan scene with wonderful soft golden light, which creates a magical atmosphere with layers of light and shadows that are so beautiful. When standing there experiencing this view, I thought that this could very well be what heaven looks like.
