Alan Barrett Images | The Bigger Picture | Tuscany 1

Tuscany has long been a favourite location for artists and photographers and the region around San Quirico d'Orcia is perhaps the most appealing.

I am no different from any other lover of the area and I am regularly attracted back to the region. One of the beauties of the area is that it is equally appealing - and quite different - in each of the four seasons, so repeat visits need not be "more of the same".
