So after a nice stroll through the woods surrounding the fortress, I overtook the puffing Americans on the last stretch uphill to win first place in the cue to pay $8 to climb further up into the fortress. Great! Shortly after breaching the castle walls via the main gate the sky opened up and the deluge began.. Thunder directly overhead when your inside a stone fortress is pretty damn impressive I have to say. Spent the next hour running between cover trying to get a vantage to video the lightning! I think I managed to capture a few flashes but looking back over the footage.. must have slipped between frames. Lucky for me or perhaps in answer to my fervent wishing, the rain gushed off into the distance and the sun shone through!
