Benedictan monk, Tuscany


During my recent visit to Tuscany I re-visited  St Antimo Abbey near the lovely village of Montalcino. It was my third visit there – I feel compelled to keep coming back, not only for the beautiful setting among vineyard but for the daily Gregorian chanting from the Benedictine monks who worship there. My arrival coincided with that of some of the monks – whose, rather appropriate, white cars raced down the driveway before two monks leapt out of each and practically ran into the abbey, just in time for the post-siesta re-opening of the abbey to the public. I was lucky enough to get a nice, atmospheric photograph of one making his way through the olive trees to the abbey.
