20160910_021151 The Trees And The Church On The Hill (Sat 10 Sep, 11:06)

Capasano, Lombardia, Italia

It didn't take us long to leave (relatively) urban Morbegno way behind.

I will admit that there was some guesswork involved here. One of the things that annoys me about the E-M1 is the lack of a GPS tagging add-on. In theory you can pair the thing with your phone and use the app on that to tag the shots. Personally I've always found that to be as fiddly as hell and about as reliable as Office 2016. (Yes, that was an insult.)

I knew that we were two minutes east of Morbegno so I followed the road that ran alongside the train track on Google Maps until I found the tower and the blue building to its left. The problem with Google Maps is that it does what it does pretrt5y well but what it doesn't do is let you zoom across to some distant location in Street View. I therefore had to go poking around the map to try to find that location. Which I (think I) did, but from that perspective you can't see the same buildings. Also I only had the 12-40 on, so I did not have a lot of detail in the church tower. I believe that it's San Bartolomeo church in Capasano... but I could be wrong.
