No, I have not been to Italy for this photo, but when you are a member of a photo club, you are encouraged to take part in photo contests. Some weeks ago I entered the 15° Gran tour delle Colline in Italy. A few days ago I saw on their website that the photo above, called "Winter Sunrise", had been accepted. As you may have guessed, the subject is Norwegian - from a municipality called "Samnanger", east of Bergen.
Another Rice Painting!
