Oh this is spectacular. How did you get up there?

Dot O said...

Beautiful, especially that second shot from the top. Don't know how you got there. Heights are definitely not my cup of tea so I will NEVER be capturing a site such as yours.

Really beautiful photographs!

I also enjoyed viewing your San Gimignana images as I stood where you stood in the captures you posted!
I was in Europe France Italy in Sept. and posted my visits!
