It's been a long time since my last submission, been running after lots of things and my time is really limited nowdays.
This is another capture from the stunning Tuscan landscapes, it was funny while in Tuscany I was searching for Cappella di Vitaleta the famous photographic spot in San Quirico D'Orcia, I managed to find the spot just a few days before I left back for Greece! LOL
I was riding all day and my opportunities where limited, I needed some rest because riding, sight seeing and photography are wonderful combination but they can get you quite quick to your knees, especially if you are riding all day long with full protection (pants, jacket, helmet, gloves, boots etc) in the heat and having also to carry the photographic gear on your back!
I setup my alarm at 05:00am to get up and hit the roads, the spot was just only a few Km's away from the place we where staying, put my camera on my tripod, left the bike behind me (which relaxed me, since the bike was just over my shoulder) and waited for the light.
Another photographer from the UK joined in, made a short stop and waited with me, a few smiles and hi's and the shutter clicks just made the rest!
