ABC Wednesday: S is for Sorano

We visited Sorano the first day of our photographic tour at Southern Tuscany.  The first town after Proceno, where we stationed.  You can see our amazement when we first laid our eyes on this picture perfect medieval castle/fortification.

The houses almost look like LEGO and they are so well preserved.

We spent half an hour photograph this walkway, practicing using the fill-in flash for the foreground.  This one was by Grace.

This one was by Bradley.  Do not vote on which one of us took the better picture, of course Grace!!!

We got the chance to go into the old church that is semi-restored and use as exhibition space for the artists living in the region.  This is the entrance doorway.  I think Grace got this one perfectly

Grace took this one again and I did some clever exposure blending to get the scenery outside the window.

This is one of the artist's exhibition.

Outside the church, we were high above the village and had a good view over the rooftops.

Soon in the afternoon, it started raining.  We were stuck under an archway.  The wet stone walk added more interest to the photograph.  Then the street light was turned on, perfect!  Can you see the reflection of the light on the stone pavement?
