Tuscany looks stunning and I want to see the wonderful mountainous scenery or visit fabulous Siena. Siena looks exciting and the famous Palio horse race where the atmosphere in the town in full of fun and expectation seems a must.
I have never been to Tuscany but would love to. In the words of a chef I should have been born Italian. I find this beautiful country pulls me like a magnet.
There are so many reasons I would love to go to Tuscany that I have created a Pinterest Board with the link below
A walk in a vineyards watching the grapes rippen in the sun then drinking the sweet wine in the shade. A Tuscany lunch of meats cheese and fruit watching the mountains glow in the sun would be memorable. I am sure I would be booking my next Villa holiday before I went home.
Visiting the historic building and meeting the people who live here would be a highlight of my holiday. II Monte farmhouse looks like a perfect place to appreciate Tuscany and the views of Florence in the distance would be romantic.

Practice run for trying to get the light right with the new camera.
Haven`t managed to get this right using a manual setting so will go back to the auto and try again.
Time for something that moves now
The fountain looks really refreshing as its so hot today. I was trying to frame the shot to avoid the bus on the right. The camera was on auto setting for this and I am struggling to get the light right on manual. will learn its early days.
That`s my practice photos for the day the only ones I am prepared to share anyway. If you would like to see my other blog it is at http://www.alondontourist.com

|Heron stands waiting for his dinner|
I like this photo the geese is trying to escape the swan after just eating some of the bread the swan had earmarked for himself.
What have you got in that bag bread I hope.
The detail is much better with this camera and I am happy with this close up shot of the duck. I now know how to zoom and how to get a close up shot. Just need to learn the millions of other things.
