Missing something

Fallow field

Vineyard to be

Tiny olive trees

Seems friendly enough

Roses at the end of the row

Fresh harvest


Wandering through

Wine tasting mid-hike

Resuming the hike

Tempting to sample, but don't! So very bitter

Scattered sunny spots

Vineyard with a tower


Sun catching the tower

More sunbreaks

Looking back at our home base


A quick glance to say hi


Moving along the ridge

The two towers again

About to lose the sun

A quiet evening



Vines, olives, and vista

Tuscan hillsides

A little more golden light

Last of the yellow

Into the shadows

Lights coming on

Tower in the valley

A good project car

Almost back to town

Bagno Vignoni Thermal Bath
