To get up at five in the morning when you’re travelling is hard, but it has its advantages. Often you find locations that look much better during sunrise than during sunset. And, usually, you find a pretty quiet environment without many people around.
I was able to take this photo from Desenzano del Garda when my friend Diego drove us to town before going to work. We wanted to go to Verona and had still one hour until our train was going. I couldn’t ask for any better conditions to kill some time.
