When storm is coming

When storm is coming

...bloody skies and pure silence surrounds you. A glimpse of an eye later the whole world drawned in white, damp fog... luckily we managed to pitch our tent and get some water before the stormy spectacle began! Saua Gargalau - Rodnei mountains 18th August 2009 Tatra mountain guide

Every now and then I find myself up high on a mountain as a storm rolls through and there is nothing like watching natures energy comming to you. Great capture Tomek Lodowy....Happy Trails

Re: Impressive....

Rodnei ridge just seems to be perfectly created for backpacking. We were so lucky about the weather these days and that colourful storm was the only diversion from sun, sun and sun again hanging non-stop in the pure blue skies above our sun-baked heads. One of the most memorable bivouac spots of mine. That changeable scenery and exquisite feeling that something mighty and mysterious is coming are not to forget.

Thanks for your great comment, happy trails and happy New Year !

There's a real atmosphere in this shot Tomek. Very impressive and daunting all at the same time!
