Anyone know where I can find it? Giro d'Italia on the Costiera Amalfitana. Would like a hi-res to use as a wallpaper...

Thanks!

All I've found is that Stefano Rellandini took the picture and it is stage 19 of the 2009 Giro.

After a quick search I haven't been able to find a higher res pic than the one you posted. Maybe that info will help though?

If you would like to pay for it you can get it from Graham Watson.

Good detective work on the Graham Watson picture, but is it offered for sale as digital, as opposed to hard copy?

Not for me, but for the benefit of our beloved moderator.

Contact Graham Watson for the digital version.

The original pic isn't by Graham Watson, of the same place, but different day and angle.

Used google goggles and got a couple hits on the original

That whole gallery is great. Might have to download them all and use it as a rotating screen saver at work. Then my coworkers will know that I'm even more obsessed than they think.

Indeed. I have done that. My CEO then walked into my office today and chuckled when he saw my desktop. :thumbup:
