I've had several people suggest that I keep the blog going... so I'm going to give it a try! I'll try to make an update every week or so with information regarding our upcoming shows, workshops, and Joel's new releases.
Here's a photo we took in Le Marche. Joel also shot some really cool video of the same poppy field in the wind.
I will probably put up Joel's new release when he chooses it as well!

We're sitting in the Phoenix airport waiting for our flight back to Flagstaff (almost home!) and I thought I'd post some more photos from the trip... one I like, and one is just for fun. If you look in the foreground of the first one- there's a crepe maker, usually about 12"+ across- so those Nutella jars are about gallon size!!

Today we bought fresh pasta and vegetables at the market that I'll make for dinner, mmmm..... I'll put a scenic of Le Marche in the next post :)

Joel and I are now in Le Marche and hope to find some treasures to photograph in the area. We are going to a town celebration dinner tonight, which should be a lot of fun... and tasty of course.

This morning we got up for sunrise and were rewarded with the most spectacular view of the Val d’Orcia yet! There was beautiful fog in the valley which created distinct layers across the rolling green hills- amazing!
This afternoon, we head to a well known estate and garden to shoot during sweet light, to be followed by, no big surprise, another spectacular meal! Our day off yesterday was much needed, actually got some work done...

Tuesday is our “day off,” so after class in the morning, we get to relax or go for a walk through the countryside... once I get this posted, I may do just that!

This morning we went out with the group to shoot sunrise over the Val d’Orcia. The weather was clear except for some fog in the valley which made for wonderful photos! I think we were all glad we got up early... We also took a guided walk through the town of Pienza (these are photos from our walk).
Tonight, we will visit a small walled village near Pienza and take a scenic drive on some country roads. Tomorrow will also be a busy day! Oh, and for the record, I did not take these two!

All our workshop participants have arrived safely! We'll have our welcome dinner tonight at one of the best restaurants in town- more fabulous Italian food- with a sunrise shoot in Pienza tomorrow. I think we're doing enough walking because all of my clothes still fit!
