Season Hunt Challenge - Rain (Week 4)

We have had a foggy and rainy weekend, but if you think that I have taken any rain photos, you are wrong 😉

Season Hunt - Week 4 - Rain

Season Hunt - Week 4

Barbara Orenya | @barbara-orenya is hosting a new Challenge:

Season Hunt

Every week a new theme is announced which suits to the actual season. It is still Autumn and this week's theme is: We are chasing RAIN (

I wanted to take some sunrise photos on a beach in Italy on Sunday and drove 2 hours only to see that sunrise wouldn't happen, because dark storm clouds had covered the whole sky. Lightning bolts told me that getting up at 3am and the long drive south was for nothing.

It was still too dark in the morning to take any photos and because there was nothing around that I could have used as shelter, I thought there might be an umbrella in the car trunk ... of course, there was none, but my son had forgotten the wheels of his friend's motorbike in there ;)

So, what did I do? Well, I didn't drive directly home, but decided to drive towards the east and through Slovenia. "Maybe I can take some rainy photos on my way back home", I thought, but did I? Of course I didn't because it either rained so hard that I couldn't get out of the car or almost nothing.

No rainy photos for this post, but...

A while after the Italian-Slovenian border I arrived in Kobarid (Soč - Towns in the Soča Valley), a historic town beneath the Krn mountain range.
At first I wanted to just drive on, but then I saw the already risen sun shining through the clouds in the east, and a single sun ray shone directly on a church in quite a distance. It was still very dark below the clouds, but this single sun ray enlightened the darkness quite nicely.

Later, I drove by the highest waterfall in Slovenia, the Boka Waterfall / Slap Boka (106 metres plus 30 metres - Soč - Boka Waterfall). From the road I could see low hanging clouds right above the fall and so I stopped and hiked up to a viewpoint.
The waterfall isn't very far from the road and my "hike" was only about 10 or 15 minutes I believe. While I was hiking the clouds covered the waterfall completely, but when I arrived at my viewpoint they raised just above the fall and I liked what I saw - hope you like it too.

A farm field with some still beautiful autumnal trees and a few already leafless trees caught my attention a few kilometres further, and I just had to stop to take a couple of photos.
While walking through the field I noticed that the farmer must have spread a lot of dung on the field not long ago ... "watch your steps" I thought and tried to keep my boots clean - it worked ... almost 😉

My way lead over the Vršič Pass (1,611 m) and on my way down the fog has become immense intense and it was slightly raining, but I like the photos I have taken back down on the other side of a little forest.

Just in case the above rainless photos from my Sunday's photo trip don't qualify for the contest, I have added a few photos of leaves with real raindrops in between, which I have taken 10 days ago, still "after the rain", but the drops are real 😊

Of course I would have been happy if the sunrise would have happened on the beach, but all in all I have had a great day on the road, took a few photos of which I like the one with the sun ray most ... I wasn't disappointed at all, and there will always be another sunrise.
And someone from the US would just smile about me when I say a two hours drive is long LOL
