To Krakow, by car, on business. Three recent return trips south along the S7 (E77) - Warsaw-Radom-Kielce-Kraków have proved to me this road's superiority to the Gierkówka (the dual carriageway built by communist leader Edward Gierek linking Warsaw to Katowice) and then the A4 motorway east to Kraków. Entering Kraks at rush hour, the jams to the centre are much shorter than those encountered coming off the A4 at Balice. And no motorway tolls.
I left home at five am, by 6:25, I'd just passed Radom, a full moon in the west, the sky just beginning to lighten, I felt that intense klimat that just had to be recorded (above).
Right: Shortly after sunrise.
I turn off the main road to get this shot.
Early morning mists were rising from the meadows, there was frost on the grass and on the trees.
Below: A little later on, the Polish road in all its winter glory.
