There comes a time on any day in the high mountains where you look to the sky and think to yourself, "I shouldn't be here.......". Then your thoughts turn to getting down as quickly and safely as possible. These are the days you talk about, should you live to tell the tale.

Greetings All, Thanks for the visit, but time to go. The thunder and lightning is to close for comfort. Nice view while it lasted. Cheers, Rich

Greetings Fatemeh and Angel, Thank you for the visits and the wonderful comments. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments. You are both so kind. I am glad you like my mountain and approaching storm. They can really make you feel small when the thunder is crashing down the gorge. Thanks again. Cheers, Rich

Wonderful sky and nice the silouhetes of the mountains --like--AnaM --Probably I was in the pub you saw in Praha, because after I crossed the bridge I went to take a beer--

Glad you had the time to snap these shots and make it down safely, Rich. Your description of the thunder crashing down the gorge really brings it home. I can almost feel it!

Cheers, Leo
