This shot is what I call a drive by shooting. I’ve had a few of these over the years. We were on our way back from a sunrise shoot in Chianti and saw these wonderful rays of sunlight coming through the clouds. We quickly pulled over and began shooting this glorious view.
I was amazed that the rays lasted as long as they did. We were hurrying to make sure we didn’t miss the light, but in the end, it lasted for a good 15 to 20 minutes. I was also amazed when I returned two years later to find a very similar scene, rays and all.
