The Peloton in Mountains

The Peloton in Mountains

Col de Pailheres,France- July 06 2013: The peloton climbing the road to Col de Pailheres in Pyrenees Mountains during the stage 8 of the 100 edition of Le Tour de France on 6 July 2013.

To shoot this image I spent about 5 hours before the peloton arrived at this point. I climbed many slopes around the place,I did hundred of test shots and I thought how will be the light in the decisive moment. Everything was done at about 40 Celsius degree at over 2000 m altitude. Finally I decide to take this shot which is a great combination of an impressive landscape in Pyrenees Mountains with professional cyclists in a difficult curve during the biggest road bicycle race in the world Le Tour de France.
