Photos in Tuscany - 2016 Photo Competition Winners
Posted by Mikolaj (02/12/2016)
One of the most special things about a holiday to Tuscany is the scenery. There are endless opportunities to capture the most stunning photos whilst on your travels. It often feels like every corner you turn there’s something new and awe-inspiring to photograph.
We love to see creative and inspiring pictures of Tuscany, and that’s why we decided to run a photo competition. We asked our clients to submit their competition entries via the client login area, and then we had the impossible task of choosing a winner. The prizes included an iPad mini for the winner, and a beautiful Food Hamper direct from the Chianti region for second and third place.
The entries we got were excellent, and they showed all aspects of Tuscany, including the rolling hills, vineyards, luxurious villas, wildlife, architecture, culture, food and even the beaches.
Take a look at all the entries here, and you will see why it was so hard to pick just three photos.
The winning photos
We were totally blown away by Olaf Schumacher’s picture ‘morgenröte’ which means dawn or red sky. This image truly captures the real beauty and magic of Tuscany. You really can wake up to a mesmerising sunrise that looks just like this.
The fog that engulfs the land portrays the mysterious side of Tuscany and the colours depicted in the photo are gorgeous. It’s hard not to be wowed by this impressive picture. Congratulations to Olaf for winning our 2016 photo competition.
In second place, Justyna Baran’s photo titled ‘look ahead Tuscany’. This charming photo features two kids gazing out at the magnificent views in front of them. We love it because it shows how Tuscany can captivate and wow children, to them it’s a mysterious land that’s perfect for exploring. The kids are looking out on a vineyard with the mountains in the distance on what looks to be a beautiful sunny day. The little girl’s sun hat is adorable and really pops out of the photo.
Finally, in third place we have Linda Dion’s image ‘Borratella Spirit’. This picture shows the laid- back Tuscan lifestyle at its best. We love how they have managed to really capture the scene with the pool and gorgeous villa in the background. It makes us want to jump on a plane so we too can sit poolside and drink Tuscan wine with some fresh locally made Anti pasti. The sunlight and shadows that cascade over the building make this image even more impressive.
