Italy is one of my favourite countries to visit.   From the lush fields of Tuscany with it's lovely medieval villages set amongst rolling hills that are wreathed in thick dawn mist to the stunning peaks of the Dolomite mountains, the landscape here is as beautiful as it is varied.  I've visited Italy multiple times, and aside from the wonderful scenery it's just such a fantastic place to spend time with amazing food, beautiful cities and incredibly friendly people.

The Weather Window

We headed up to Passo Giau to shoot the famous peak of Ra Gusela, which dominates the view there, but the weather was much more dramatic looking in different directions and I captured this image looking south as one of the distant peaks was slowly engulfed by the heavy winter clouds.

Pelmo Snow Storm

Incredibly high winds of over 70kph and swirling snow made photography almost impossible on this sunrise, but I managed to grab this telephoto image of Mount Pelmo with the winds blowing snow from the surrounding peaks



It’s hard to get bored of the wonderful views in Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia in the morning, even one as iconic as Belvedere farmhouse.

Capella di Vitaleta

I first photographed this chapel in Tuscany on a misty morning 8 years ago and each time I return here it amazes me to see how little the whole area has changed.


A winding, cypress lined road across rolling hills to a stone farmhouse. It can only be Tuscany.
This image was taken in Crete Senesi, south of Siena.

Tuscan Light

These cypress trees near San Quirico d'Orcia must be among the most photographed trees in the world. It's still impossible to ignore them though, there's just something so appealing about their location, standing isolated in the rolling hills of Tuscany.

Venice Sunset

The classic view from St Mark's square in Venice, looking across to the Chiesa di San Maggiore at sunset.
