Skywatch Friday - Tuscany in the Fall

Click to enlarge photo.
On this date two years ago, I was in Italy enjoying the sun and warmth of that stunningly beautiful country. This is one of the picturesque villages that I visited and was lucky to catch this shot. As I strolled around the outer wall looking down over the countryside, I saw the village church steeple rise up ahead of me. Below the village stand typical Italian cypress and Mediterranean pine trees. Only a couple of puffy cotton ball-type clouds floated past on the gentle breeze.

As I look outside at the grey skies and rain today, how I wish I were there again!
