September days are not as hot as the summer ones even if the sun keeps on shining. During free practices in the morning I did not have many ideas, Misano is not my favorite track and I was looking for inspiration when I decided to take advantage of this strong backlight that dazzled me. I have been helped by this kind of light, by technical skill and by luck to make the picture comes out with this star reflection.
