      Just noticed the house at the top, I can imagine getting back home from a ride: Honey, did you remember to pick up the bread?

      It's a very nice small chapel. It's actually not that slanted .... I was just nervous framing the photo :)

      Having been up there too, you have done a fantastic job getting that shot. It is not straight forward view to shoto:-)
