Splendour

The Monsoon season approaches.

There will be many evenings in the next few months when I have to put up with scenes like this unfolding outside my living-room window...what have I done to deserve this fate...sigh...


Here is a selection of skies from last year.

Well it's certainly a spectacular thing Ray - but then I suppose the rains are too
Ray: I like the rains in Bangkok, Chris. They often occur in the evening, and are accompanied by an excellent sound&light show. They probably last 20-30minutes, turn the lanes into temporary rivers, then go.
That is some impressive sky! Nice capture...
Ray: Thanks, Gina. There will be a lot of evenings like this.

Its a hard life Ray, Esp after vintage Aussie and l got up early to shoot the sunrise down the gold coast which was decidedly ordinary smile
Ray: I have posted a shot, Zed, where all I did was look right without even moving from my computer desk, camera up to face, click!

With this one, I took about 10 steps from computer desk to balcony, camera up to face, click! It's a tough life when you want shots of sunsets...
I hope theyre all as good as this, beauty!
Ray: They won't be, but there will be a few even better.

Great colour
Ray: Thanks, Vintage.
Yeah what have you done to deserve this?smile It's beuatiful. I would have called it Burning Sky. Some clouds on this pic look like birds to me. It's a big one in the backround with wide open wings.
Ray: It's great fun when you can see animals in clouds, Delia.

I hope one day to see a facsimile of Mother Teresa or David Beckham in a loud...that will be worth posting on Shutterchance. [grin]
This is a superb start Ray. I hope the coming ones will be as good as last year ones!
Ray: Thanks, Richard. I am expecting good things.

PURE DELIGHT....Ray, I know life is NOT fair, sigh, it must be hard to see this every once in a while......that is the same to me, I was this morning in the fog, the fog was low and I could see the trees above it in the sun......I had to go to work.....it would have been a great picture.

I hope you don't mind that I made it a likey.....tonguetongue
Ray: So annoying, isn't it, when work gets in the way of a good photo-opportunity.

I carry a camera in my computer backpack, just in case I see something unusual.

I am glad you like this one, Astrid...should make Europeans feel warm.

Spectacular is almost an understatement. And that one cloud looking like an angel - reminds of the film of angels in L.A. - you know that dopey actor.

May you be relieved from this visitation soon - a speedy end of the monsoon to you. Braggard.
Ray: Nick whathisname...he is dong a few movies these days where his character is not human.

Yeh...life is tough...
beautiful shot Raysmile
Ray: Thanks, Tim...glad you like it.
Apparently those dramatic skies of Turners were all down to pollution. Is this the same? Great picture anyway!
Ray: Yes...I am fairly sure air pollution plays a part here... Air Pollution should get balanced scorecard...it is not all bad...

[Perhaps you could persuade the local authorities to allow a big old-tech coal-fired power station in your hills, Bill]

Stunning skies. I'm envious.
Ray: Thanks Jessie.

As I recall, there are other, but not lesser, natural attractions in New Zealand.
Wonderful sunset ! Cheers !
Incredibly beautiful image!
Ray: You are very kind, Clare.
