I spent one month climbing in San Vito lo Capo in Sicily after the best climbing festival I have ever attended. That specific day I was at the Grotta del Cavallo, the horse cave, a spectacular overhanging wall facing the sea. I just sent a 7c when the light started getting amazing.
I was with my girlfriend trying to teach her about composition and lighting. We climbed until the very end of the cave looking out at the scene. A climber started the same route I had just sent. When he was roughly in the middle of the route the light turned perfect. The red rock lit up with the sunset which lasted for three minutes – three minutes of beauty and harmony.
I was excited but I gave my camera to my girlfriend in order to practice photography, the decision was either get the picture and possibly argue or let the situation flow and keep the peace. So I drew my mobile and shot the photo I was looking for.
