Dodging The Clouds

The morning of Sunday 31 May was a stressful experience with malevolent clouds trying to thwart my attempts at photography. Unusually, most missed their mark and the vast majority of loco hauled trains passed in sunlight. In this instance, the cloud had cleared less than a minute before Lindau bound ALX38704, with 223.061 on the front, rounded the curve near Zell, north of Oberstaufen.
