The Weekly Photo Challenge is Anticipation.
We were looking forward to our TranzAlpine Train trip across the Southern Alps in New Zealand. It was an overcast and rainy day, but it didn’t stop our enthusiasm for the world’s most scenic train ride.
As we climbed through the snow-covered mountains, the photographer’s car buzzed with excitement.
What surprises would we find around the next bend, we wondered with anticipation.
The clouds blanketed the Southern Alps with greediness, almost as if to say, “Be patient with your yearnings.”
Suddenly, we were surrounded with darkness as we passed through a tunnel. With a fervorous pitch, we howled with impatience. Yet, we knew there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
The mountain teased us with its cloud covered splendor. We longed for the clouds to rise.
Instead, the clouds sank to the ground so we could peek at her majestic apex. We snapped, snapped, snapped in gusto!
At the train station in Arthur’s Pass, we waited with ravenous hunger for more…more vistas…more splendor.
And we weren’t disappointed. The clouds rose with alacrity and we were bestowed with joy.
