Beautiful landscapes for very early birds

Thursday from 5.30 am to 12.45 pm

This photography tour is for real early birds! We meet up with the rising sun to be on location at the right time. First we will do landscape photography in the stunning area between Asciano and San Giovanni d'Asso. Then we will move to Chiusure, a lovely little town on the "crete senesi", and take few pictures of the Monte Oliveto Maggiore abbey from a great location. Before the end of the workshop you will photograph the most famous italian cow, the Chianina. We will visit a fascinating borgo founded in the 15th century where Chianina cows are bred. After taking pictures of the animals and the borgo you will have the opportunity to taste different meats produced by the farm.
