We were driving to a scenic spot high in the mountains when I saw this scene – it was raining then and we were in the middle of a cloud and I thought to myself that this would be a good place to stop on the way back if only the weather cleared.

Well we couldn’t reach where we wanted as a landslide had blocked the route and so when we were coming down the mountain I had fingers crossed that the clouds would clear for just a few mins when I reached this spot. They did :-)

Took a few quick hurried shots (had to be quick as the road was only narrow enough for one car with a huge drop off the other side). But enough time for about half a dozen shots.
