Weekly Travel Theme:

This week, the weekly travel theme over at Where’s my Backpack is Contrast. This had me stumped…did I want contrasting colours, contrast between old and new, or contrast between light and dark, or what? And did I have an image or images that I felt was sufficiently striking to use? If it’s contrast, it needs to be striking, by the nature of the word. So I had a flick through some images, lined up a few possibles, but nothing quite stuck out.

Then I happened on this one, which I hope shouts contrast…One of those moments when the light is just there for you. We had driven up the Stelvio Pass in our old cars to the top, in hideous foggy conditions, and suddenly the fog disappeared, enormous dark rainclouds took over, and sun at the far end of the valley. The only thing to do was jump out of the cars and take photographs…..

  1. This is really awesome! Great capture.

  2. I just read an article in one of my engineering journals that the editors of CarRoute.com ranked the top 15 most amazing roads in the world. This was #2. Your picture is better than the one they used!

    • Many thanks! I’ve driven on the Stelvio twice now, and it is an amazing road. The first time, the road was in quite bad repair, but somehow more in keeping with its surroundings…I got quite a surprise at seeing all this new Tarmac snaking down the valley!
