Title: Wavy hills of South Moravia

About the Photo:

The rolling South Moravian landscape in the Czech Republic, very popular among photographers, is quite difficult to photograph from above, but when you get to the right spot it’s literally top. I found this place between Bílovice and Čejkovice by chance, because it is not one of the famous South Moravian photo locations, on my way home from an otherwise not very successful few days of shooting. However, the light was not good anymore and it started to rain with snow, so I quickly packed it up. But I didn’t give up and in a couple of weeks I went straight to this place again. However, on the couple hour drive from Prague I was already feeling sick and it escalated pretty quickly, so when I arrived at the place I had a fever and was shivering with chills. But I so wanted to do the photo .. and the light was awesome .. so I spent about an hour there. The acute streptococcal infection hit me perfectly that night, so I don’t even know how I got back to Prague after that.
