Elusive still. The sun is up, the cock crows, the church bells peal. Come now, awaken the town with the promise of another day!

    Anthony, I think I do win! These joys await you when you quit the rat race! I like nothing better than the cool, clear air of a morning full of expectation. Take care my friend.

    Thanks Otto – much appreciated. We were positioned on the terrace at the top of an old bell tower where we stayed, in the crisp, dark morning air. The sun rose slowly as we watched, allowing us to take dozens of shots – a magical experience.
