I took this photo at the end of a heavy storm in the Tuscan countryside. While I was shooting, I appreciated the typical smell that the rain leaves on the wet grass and it reminded me of when, with my father, I admired the storms from the window of our house, hence the title, Scent of storm.

For me, landscape photography is more than just a click. It is the way to disconnect from the hectic everyday life, as well as express myself and my emotions. From an early age my parents have always taken me in their free time in the middle of nature, teaching me to respect it. Nature has always benefited my life. In fact, whenever I need to find myself and contemplate my thoughts, I escape the city and immerse myself completely in nature. I try to convey this value to my son Jonathan as well. In the hope that his generation can protect our beautiful planet in the best possible way.
