The sunrise photo above is the featured photo for April 2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:
We were staying at a Tuscan villa near San Gimignano for 3 weeks, and having a glorious time. This was the view from our apartment, taken at 5:30 in the morning. If you want to get this kind of gentle, layered vista, you have to get up just before sunrise. Unfortunately, it won’t look like this every morning! but if you’re persistent, you will be rewarded.
