Camera LEICA V-Lux on tripod. Late afternoon. ISO 80. Manual focusing and Manual exposure. It was impossible not to take a picture of this magical place and moment. Well, all around reminded me of the concept of Man and Nature in the Sturm und Drang philosophy. Nature as an utopian dream (or place) where Human Beings find themselves in perfect balance with Creation. Here, the good primitive man living embedded by Nature but when meeting Civilisation and Society changing into a devil. The ruined house captivated me; a border line: here, Nature and beyond…”There” was another world. In special way its contrast with coloured hills, strange lights around, and Beautiful Siena in the far background increased this severance. Nature as Mother and StepMother (as an Italian Poet wrote in 19°century) where sublime is the dynamic engine: all this suggested to me that place in that moment.
PS: Just a little-little bit of HDR “monochrome preview” and increasing saturation till getting this result (this is one of my fav paths). Detail Enhacer. Nothing else was necessary. No filters, no hard editing, no fake moods: Siena, Val d’Orcia don’t need such insults. Sit and Hear to the Sound of this Land rich of dark patterns due to clouds reflecting onto soil.
