quiet

Pitigliano, Tuscany

not really on the tourist trail, Pitigliano's streets are very quiet even at 9pm, as few locals are about after night falls...(the exif times of all shots in this gallery are off by -9 hours, as the camera was still set to Vancouver time)

Nikon D90
1/2s f/7.1 at 18.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

Beautiful setting and the golden glow is delightful and of coarse the solitary figure is a bonus to the composition.
