Shot on a trip to Saxony in April, while cycling part of the Elbe Cycle Route with bikes hired from the excellent Augustus Tours.

Pictured, the old town of Meissen, home to the historic Meissen Porcelain Factory – the first place in Europe to discover the secret of making porcelain (as opposed to importing it from China), back in 1708.

Shot on a trip to Saxony last month, while visiting the national park as a day trip from Dresden – a short ride on the S-Bahn to Kurort Rathen, a ferry over the River Elbe (which we would spend the next couple of days cycling along), and a short hike up to the rather amazing-looking Bastei Bridge.
