Il pdr classico da cui si scatta è all'interno di una proprietà privata ma non ci sono recinzioni. Rimane più in alto rispetto al podere Belvedere e solitamente io ho quasi sempre scattato con il 70-200.Il pdr è sul limite di un filare di ulivi che costeggiano la strada che va da San Quirico a Pienza. Davanti al campo di ulivi trovate lo spiazzo per parcheggiare(sulla dx in direzione Pienza). Attenzione a scendere più in basso rispetto al pdr classico perchè il proprietario del podere alla notte lascia libero il cane (mia esperienza personale)

Hello, according to my research, the farm is in the following position: 43° 3'43.69"N 11°37'13.83"E The map shows another property. What is right?

Thanks for sharing the location for such an amazing photo. Is the shooting spot on a private property? Is the spot accessible through the Ristorante. Would love to have a meal there after the early morning photo walk.
