Chiemsee, Clearing Storm (3 photos)

It’s good to have an umbrella. I was able to wait out a brief but heavy downpour on an afternoon walk with Toni at Feldwies, and as the sun defeated the clouds, I was treated with some wonderful crepuscular rays of light.

People call these rays of sunlight “god beams” which is kind of interesting since it hints at old religions and beliefs that worshiped the sun as their god. Nowadays we know that the sun is a star about 8 light-minutes away from the Earth – but indeed, it is the giver of life. In the case of my photos though, I leave such interpretation to the viewer – the photos just are what the are: a lucky capture of a beautiful moment as the elements work together nicely, nothing more, nothing less…
