A little explaination for my not italian speaking friends... ;-))))
The statue represents Giotto, the famous Florence painter; in italian
you can read "G8" as "GI-OTTO" (and not
"g-eight" or worst "Greater Eight"!!!!).
Then, having only my 55-200 that evening, and being the Vicchio place small, I could shoot only the higher parts of the statue and the church; the Summit, in effect... :-)))))))))
The colours are real, not photoshopped. There was a feast in the town and various coloured spots lightened the statues and the buildings.
Uhm....finish to talk, Firenzesca?
End of the Summit.
