After the Rain – A Moody Mountain

Between 6:30 and 6:50 am today I took several photos of Mount Warning. She’d been in hiding for most of the weekend, but this morning she emerged from behind the clouds, washed pristine-clean by the heavy rain we had during the weekend.

I could see the Condong Sugar Mill clearly this morning too, with bright green cane fields in the foreground and rolling hills behind.

As the morning sun hit the mountain the colours of the sky, clouds and the mountain changed.

And then the colours changed some more.

The mood of the mountain changed before my eyes as I watched, fascinated, clicking away with my camera.

Within the space of twenty minutes, the mountain put on a show which more than made up for her absence during the last few days of rain.
