Two weeks ago we were traveling in Tuscany, Italy, and stayed for a few days in Radda in Chianti in the heart of the Chianti region. This region is famous for it’s beautiful and picturesque landscapes filled with vineyards, olive trees and typical Tuscan style cottages.

From our hotel room we had a magnificent view that demanded to be photographed at any time of day. My favorite moment was though during sunrise in the early morning when the light was still soft and the colors vibrant. The first sunbeams would strike the hills and cast long shadows.

Every morning at 6:15 am I would get up to open our bedroom window and enjoy the view, take a few photos to capture the sense and the beauty of Tuscany.

If you would like to enjoy this view for yourself in real life I can highly recommend staying at hotel Relais Vignale in Radda in Chianti and ask for the Superior Double room with number 37.
