The story behind the image

I love to run in the early morning and enjoy the peace, the silence and the (often) incredible mood!

Bellaria-Igea Marina is a lovely town situated close to Rimini at the Adriatic Coast. Nothing beats running at 6 am along the Lungomare (beach promenade) while gazing at the sea and breathing the mild, fresh air. On my track I encountered this beautiful scene, a few minutes before sunrise.

The clouds where illuminated by the rising sun (from behind the horizon), creating a dramatic and colorful image. The lady in the front created a beautiful contrast, silhouette-style.

It’s well worth the tag #iwishiwasherenow
