It is an incredibly, no I'll take that back--heartbreakingly--beautiful part
of Italy. Just gorgeous. I've spent a lot of time around there and in
Southern Tuscany, around the border of Umbria, and there are no words to
describe it. You are right when you say that its an area well-suited for
Leica lenses. The colors are subtle and delicate, and there atmosphere can
be a challenge sometimes, especially when it's hot and hazy. 

I wish I were there, too! And yes, a great place for a LUG photo safari. I'm
packing my stuff now! ;-)

Kit, yes. I photographed it yesterday afternoon,"from the shadow side.  The
field had just been plowed so there is great texture to the fields.

I love the shapes, folds, textures, colors and tones of the Tuscan landscape
-- and that's just the dirt!  The cypress trees provide a  perfect
exclamation point in the landscape.  Each morning and afternoon I go out
with my Leicas (with Leica lenses, BD) and have a grand time.  This would be
a great place for a lUG photo safari.  As Sal would say, "Happy Snaps."
