Being up and about early has so often gifted me unexpected and ephemeral sights here that I feel I’ve missed something – or might have – when I sleep in.
At about 900 metres elevation, we do catch clouds often. They may be slow to lift, waiting for the new sun to warm them and lighten the load. But when they do, the two elements can create wonders.
At moments like these, I can see how folk might have thought they were having visions of enlightenment as the figure reaches out its arms to them.
Even when the effect of a figure has dissipated, the long rays continue to find their way though the forest for many photogenic minutes more.
