Photographer's Note

The lush green fields of Val d’Orchia are overlooked by the dormant volcano Monte Amiata.

Monte Amiata is a volcanic cone that rises 600 m about the surrounding plateau to reach a total height of 1732 m, making it the second highest volcano in Italy. Mt Etna, the highest, rises to 3315 m. Monte Amiata is the northernmost of a string of volcanoes along the west cost of Italy and divides the Val d’Orcia from the Maremma, and dominates the landscape of southern Tuscany, Italy. Monte Amiata last erupted about 180,000 years ago and continues to fuel many thermal springs (terme) around its base
