During a much-too-brief visit to Italy a bit over two years ago, a new friend invited me to spend an evening at his family’s farm high in a valley in the South Tyrolean Alps. After a day of exploration, and after the sun had set, an old grain-storage shed (Kornschuppen) on the far side of the little valley caught my eye, and I called for a quick stop so I could make a study while there was enough light. As it turned out, the low light was just what it needed for me to be able to present the image I envisioned at the time.

This place seems to be out of the movie “Lord of the Rings”, incredible beautiful! So full green :) I have been to Italy only once, but I like the Alps :)
What a great spot. I would love to see this someday.
Such a stunning photograph, so lush and green. I love the lines of the image.
I’m not sure if you noticed when you stopped by my blog today, I included you in my list of nominees for the Versatile Blogger award! http://lemonygregghead.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/in-celebration/
I’ll completely understand (as I mentioned in the post) if blogging awards is not something you’re interested in, but I absolutely did want to recognize you for the inspiring work you post here on your blog. I have only recently discovered your site myself, and hope that others will find their way to you through the nomination. All my best. Melanie
Thank you so much! Please see your e-mail…
So green and so beautiful, what a lovely spot!
It provided just what I needed as the dot on the i for a wonderful day of exploration. Thanks very much!
Now that would be some walk each day up and down those hills… very serene.
beautiful scenery! Great rich green!
I do love shooting in low-light conditions, and it’s often so rewarding. Yes, it was a very special green. Thanks for taking the time to tell me you liked it!
