Photo Competition 2011

  • CONGRATULATIONS, WE HAVE A WINNER!

    Congratulations to Markus Pesendorfer from Austria who has emerged as the winner of the To Tuscany 2011 Photocompetition with his delightful photo of his children sitting on the steps of a Trullo.

    We have really enjoyed seeing all the votes coming in on our ‘live vote’ buttons. Of course the votes had to be checked to ensure it was a fair competition and any multiple votes were removed, this is why some of the numbers have changed so much.

    The top 5 photos are below. Underneath these are all the other entries which are in alphabetical order according to first name.

    Our fantastic prizes are being sent to the winners and we would like thank everyone for entering their photos and also for voting. We hope it has inspired those of you travelling with us this year to enter the competition for 2012!

    For any enquiries, please contact dympna@to-tuscany.com

    You can view all of the competition entries for this year (and every year since we started it in 2007) on the To Tuscany Flickr photo account

    A Florence La pause, pour un homme-statue!
    Le temps d'un cliché Piazza Del Grano, mon épouse à ses côtés, un homme statue magique me fit voyager dans un autre âge. Sa rencontre fortuite deux heures après,
    à la terrasse d'un restaurant d'une ruelle florentine, me fit cette fois l'effet d'un "retour vers le futur numéro 4"!

    Blue door, yellow sunflower, Volpaia
    I took this photo whilst we were mooching around the beautiful hilltop village of Volpaia, near Radda, waiting for a table to become available for lunch on the terrace of the wonderful La Bottega restaurant. I loved the contrast of the cool blue door and the bright yellow sunflowers.

    As old as me - precious Chianti at La Bottega di Coltibuoni, Badia a Coltibuoni
    We visited the 1,000 year old Coltibuoni estate for a tour and wine tasting whist staying at Villa Sturchi in the Spring.  The cellars had wines dating back years so couldn't resist a photo of the '61 vintage but unfortunately was not allowed a sample of this precious Chianti.

    Ragnaia view
    After a hair-raising drive on an especially rutted and skiddy strada bianca, all the more delight to arrive at the Cantina di Rignana, eat
    magical food and savour this classic Chianti view as we sipped our chilled Rose wine. Bliss.

    The beautiful blue sea at Monte Argentario
    We left the chillier April temperatures of our villa in the Tuscan hills to discover the wonderful warmth of the sea at Monte Argentario. When I called to my daughter, she turned and lamented not having brought her swimsuit. She later happily waded in the water with our grandson Giacomo.

    Pontevecchio. Tendre tradition. Cette jolie jeune fille verrouille, parmi des centaines d’autres, son « cadenas d’amour »  symbolisant ainsi son attachement à l’être aimé. Et visiblement ça la rend heureuse. Un petit soleil sous la grisaille ce jour de juillet.

    A Secret Invitation
    Not many can pass the gates of the walled city of Montepulciano without being drawn inside.  For those able to resist it’s medieval, Renaissance allure, this side entrance, near the main gate is sure to change their mind.  After all, who can resist exploring a “secret” passageway?

    Tuscan Moon
    I was staying with my wife and four other couples at a Villa outside Castille San Gimiagno. We were outside enjoying local wine and a beautiful moon. The largest moon I have ever seen (the harvest/Equinox Moon). Awesome! We loved Tuscany. I can't wait to go back.
