I am in Tuscany and precisely among the hills of Castiglione d'Orcia in Val d'Orcia, Italy, for the production of new images for Fine Art prints. I waited ten minutes after sunrise to let the light filter through the newly sprouted wheat on the clays and between the rows of cypress trees to tell a moment of bliss that this valley can give.

Alberto Fornasari, professional photographer, was born in Arezzo in 1973. It's really Tuscany with its traditions and its beautiful scenery to inspire and define more closely the poetry of his photographic journey. Since 1994 he has dedicated himself to telling the story of the Val d'Orcia and the Crete Senesi through images in all seasons of the year, taking advantage of the light of dawn. He made his first landscape photographic exhibition in 1997 and in 2000 received his first award in the competition Italian Institute of Landscape Photography.
