Photographer's Note

The title words are literally clay of Siena.

This name covers an area located in the southeast of Siena and includes the municipalities of Asciano, Buonconvento, Monteroni d'Arbia, Rapolano Terme, San Giovanni d'Asso and Trequanda. It was there that rises Monte Oliveto Maggiore Benedictine monastery called Olivetans. The area of crops suitable formations intersect barren hills a little lunar landscape.

In autumn, when most fields are also deserted the impression that the desert intensified immensely. About this time of year around the green wild canes, little wineries have barely sustained the burden of grapes, sometimes olive groves and always welcome cypresses and pin.

We saw this amazing sight when leaving the beautiful and soulful monastery Monte Oliveto Maggiore.

This is a scan from negative.
