A couple of years ago Ruth and I led another private photo tour around Tuscany, Italy. I’m just now processing through all the images from that trip, and this is one of my favourites so far.
This photograph was made from the roof terrace at the top of our lovely hotel. It dramatically portrays the skyline accented by the dome of the Siena Duomo (main cathedral) and Torre del Mangia (Tower of the Eater). According to Wikipedia, the tower name refers to its first bellringer, Giovanni di Balduccio, nicknamed Mangiaguadagni (‘eat-the-profits’, or, ‘profit eater’) for his spendthrift tendency or his idleness or gluttony.

In the Spring of 2014, I led a private photo tour with clients in southern Spain, mainly Andalusia and Catalunya.
We began the trip in Seville – an incredibly beautiful, historic and photogenic city.
This image features the Metropol Parasol, which you can walk around the top of. The scale of the structure is evident by the people at bottom left, whom appear tiny in comparison.

Kylemore Abbey is a Benedictine monastery founded in 1920 on the grounds of Kylemore Castle, in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. The abbey was founded for Benedictine Nuns who fled Belgium in World War I. Construction was completed in 1871; it was originally built as a private home for the family of Mitchell Henry, a wealthy doctor from London whose family was involved in textile manufacturing in Manchester, England.
