Sunrise in the Orcia Valley

Sunrise in the Orcia Valley

An early shooting in one of the most photogenic places in the world: the Orcia Valley

Friday from 5.50 am to 11.50 am

Walking difficulty: easy

In this workshop we will be in the middle of the Orcia Valley before the sun rises. We will get advantage of the wonderful light for landscape photography and then we will move to Castiglione d'Orcia, a lovely village that dates back to the 8th century. Here we will have breakfast and we will practice street photography in the square and alleys. Around midmorning we will move to a Cinta Senese breeding farm in the surrounding of the old part of Chianciano, in the countryside. Cinta Senese is a typical pig of the area, well known for the taste of its meat. After seeing the animals we will have a brunch in the ancient wine cellar of the family who runs the Cinta Senese breeding farm and also a winery.
