On the way to the town of Pienza in Tuscany, a visitor might take this small dirt road and come across this single tree, growing all by itself, tall and proud as part of the lush green vegetation that makes up the gorgeous Tuscany countryside, that people come from miles around to enjoy and experience. While many of the trees that can be found in the Tuscany are Cypress trees, there are other beautiful trees which dot the landscape and offer shade from the sun or a subject to photograph with puffy white clouds lingering above.
Surrounded by dramatic scenery of lush green grass, undulating hills, and historic towns nearby, this tree was found along a narrow dirt road with the pretty town of Pienza situated nearby. Pienza is a picturesque community in Tuscany and well worth a visit, but for a lover of nature, most of the enjoyment can be had from the journey on the way to the town, where sites like this can be seen.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/5.6, exposure time of 1/160 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 70mm.
