...erm... I hope you are wearing your safety-hard-top-helmet...
Brilliant find indeed. I hope you did not meet any rocks....
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...I was wearing Elizabeth's car...smile So I was ok, fortunately, no rocks, Astrid smile Thanks.
this looks a lot like our northern roads in the rain Frank... except our signs have a picture of rocks falling down a 45 degree angle rock face... the rain is about the same.....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Rain is rain, wherever, Peter...smile It was a wild day.
I sure hope everyone slowed down during this storm, Frank. It's the kind of thing that can be down-right nerve-racking! You've presented it perfectly because I can already feel the tension!
Frank L Croston.: Well I was off the main roads, Ginnie, so there was little traffic, thank goodness! Thank you.
Wow, excellent image Frank! We can feel the drama.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard...it was a dramatic storm, I was glad I stayed out in it.

Peering into the unknown. Very dramatic and I'm pleased that you have left this in colour.
Frank L Croston.: It was a bit 23rd psalm'ish Alan...smile What colour there was, namely the sign did attract me,thanks, Alan.

Hello, very good shot wonderful pictures!
Frank L Croston.: Hallo to you too...Thank you, thanks for looking in.
It's a nuisance (allowable SC word) when your windscreen wipers pack in Frank. Makes for a great image though.
Frank L Croston.: If they had, it would have been an unacceptable word, Andrew smile However, they were switched off, for arts sake...smile I'm glad you like it.
Good to pull over. I am used to storms here but the flash flooding there would make one nervous.
Frank L Croston.: Well I knew that wouldn't happen on this road, Mary, as for rocks...Well, the slope on the left is the bottom of a volcano crater, a steep slope all the way up, so anything could roll down.
Not the sort of conditions to venture forth in, did it tale long for the storm to pass over?
Frank L Croston.: Unless you are a bit daft like me...smile It passed over after a couple of hours, Brian.

Bump, oh that was a rock! I like the gritty look provided by the drops on the glass.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, fortunately I avoided any, Louis,glad you like the pic'.
This is great stuff Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Bill, I'm pleased you think so.
