The story behind the image

Did you know that Tuscany is so much more than Florence, Siena, and Pisa? Tuscany has a long west coast with many beaches. In 2012, we spent our summer vacation in Castiglione della Pescaia. It’s an old town with stunning architecture in its historic town center but it has large, beautiful beaches as well.

One evening I wanted to capture the old catholic church Parrocchia Di San Giovanni Battista which overtowers the town and the historic center. The light was streaming in from the west and illuminated the church tower and some of the houses. Most of the town had been dipped into shadow already.

I really like that the church is being highlighted by the warm sunlight – a shining symbol of hope and peace.
