The Guardian of the Crete
After a long courtship, I made a photograph I had in mind for a long time.
I had been observing that solitary cypress that surmounts a hill in the landscape of the Crete Senesi for many years.
But it didn't show how I wanted it to.
I was looking for an intense and dramatic black and white in the contrasts of the sky, and a light texture with few disturbing elements on the rolling hills.
Or rather: I chased low moving clouds and a light plowing that showed the lunar essence of the Crete, the worked clay.
And finally, in one of the last days of November 2020, all the stars aligned, and I transformed what I had only imagined so far into a photograph.
