In jur de ora 8 dimineata, mergand pe centura orasului Ramnicu Valcea, am vazut cumva in spatele meu ca norii grei care acopereau cerul incep sa nasca o spartura, prin care era posibil, dupa cum era pozitionata, sa permita soarelui sa lumineze dealurile de dedesubt intocmai ca un reflector. Tot uitandu-ma in oglinda masinii si intorcand capul, am iesit la un momentdat in decor, norocul meu ca era camp nearat, fara nici macar sant la margine. Desi ma cam grabeam, am decis totusi sa opresc, presimtind ca ceva fotografic o sa se intample. Intr-adevar, asteptarea mi-a fost rasplatita cu imaginea tulburatoare de mai jos. Aducandu-mi aminte ca drumul, la un moment dat, traverseaza raul Olt, am plecat repede sperand sa prind cumva acest cadru si reflectat in apa. A rezultat in cele din urma o imagine diferita, nu mai putin interesanta.

Driving on the Ramnicu Valcea bypass road, at about 8 o’clock in the morning, I noticed that the heavy clouds above were forming a hole and from there, hopefully, the light of the sun could leak and light the hills bellow. Looking at the sky to see if I was right, I left accidentally the road,  without bad consequences, fortunately.  I stopped the car and after a few moments I immortalized this dramatic image. 2 miles away, the road was crossing the Olt river and I photographed it again, getting a different image, but not less wilder than the first one.
