Weekly Photo Challenge – Foreshadow

3 Aug

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge is Foreshadow which means “a warning or an indication”.

And on seeing this topic, I just couldn’t help but be reminded of one of the worst storms that we have ever encountered during our travels.  Though it inconvenienced us on the trip then, still it also left us with some interesting memories and travel tales to share.

We faced this storm when we were traveling from Munich to Fussen to see the famous Neuschwanstein Castle.  Dark ominous clouds kept following us the entire train ride until we disembarked from the train, coz then it felt like the sky opened up and it started pouring. And it kept up with us the whole day.

We literally saw everything through a curtain of rain, but also got an opportunity to click some interesting pics. We clicked the colorful umbrellas, water dropping from the trees, castles through rains and clouds, dark clouds over towns etc etc 🙂

Hence my lesson learnt through all my travels is – “never complain about what you get on a trip, because everything is an opportunity to see the old in a new way”. 🙂

This is my post for this weekly challenge and you can check out more pics on the same here.

    Great to see Neuschwanstein. I visited many years ago. Cloud pics are kind of spooky.

    I can imagine the intensity of downpour that would have followed!
