Unexpected Gifts

I took this picture in Soussosvlei, Namibia.
When booking accommodation for my visit, I had this very clear picture of all the beautiful photo's I am going to take. The orange sand-dunes and the clear blue sky! Those images that's on the post cards.
Once I got over my disappointment, realizing that I it might even rain in the desert, and I am here, I focussed my attention on the beauty of the cloud formations. It did rain (very little). And I was there! 
Sometimes we think that we are not getting what we ask for, but if  we slow down and look/listen, we might find that we are getting something much better.
