Passo Sella in Graham Watson's ''Landscapes of Cycling''

The Passo Sella in the fantastic Dolomites is the cover photo of renowned cycling photographer Graham Watson's "Landscapes of Cycling". My hint: GO!

Book description:
"For the first time in his 27-year career, premier cycling photographer Graham Watson shares his unprecedented collection of landscapes from around the globe in Landscapes of Cycling. Combining Watson’s passionate coverage of professional bicycle racing with his mastery of natural-light photography, Landscapes of Cycling is a visual feast for cycling enthusiasts and photography lovers alike.

Bicycle racing is a fascinating, grueling, fast-paced, and colorful sport. Professional races take place in spectacular locations all over the world-alongside sun-drenched fields, on twisted roadways overlooking the strikingly blue Mediterranean Sea, over snowy mountain passes, and down the ancient cobblestone streets of Belgian villages.

Organized by season, Landscapes of Cycling features never-before-published panoramic photographs and a generous sampling of Graham Watson’s most famous scenic shots. With captions and commentary from the master himself, this landmark work belongs on the shelves of racing fans and photographers everywhere."

Hardcover with dust jacket. 240 pp. 11 x 11. Over 150 color photographs, printed on glossy paper.
