Fire engine and Rabí

On Saturday my hubby and I went on a photo walk, despite quite unfavourable weather forecast. You never really know what the weather will be like in two hours in a location far enough from where you start and we rather wanted to give the photographing a chance than stay at home and regret what we might have missed.

Well, I can tell you that the weather was bad enough at the destination we headed for and arrived at after almost an hour of driving. The temperature was just below the freezing point but the wind was chilly and then it started drizzling persistently so taking photos was rather a question of not giving up than creating anything meaningful.

Yet I came home with a photo that I love and find interesting. On our way to the destination I glimpsed from the car the scenery below. I told my hubby I liked it but we didn’t stop and went further. On our way back I expected the fire engine would be long gone but it was still there, in front of the ruined castle Rabí and this time my hubby pulled off and let me capture the scene which I was thrilled to do. 

Later at home I played with the photo to give it a few different feels, to tell a few more stories, here they are.

You never know what you may find when not giving up.



  1. You’ve created some very artistic images from that one photograph. I liked the original very much, but it was fun seeing the different edits you applied and the different moods achieved. I’m glad you didn’t give up and that your hubby stopped to give you the opportunity to capture this shot.

  2. I can’t believe how many castles show in your travels! Was there an actual fire going on? The shots that look aged are the ones that caught my eye this time. Probably because of the castle in the background.
