Skywatch Friday 18 July



I don't think I've posted these pictures for SWF before. I took these at the end of May, as we were escorting some guests to view sites where our project has been working. The site which has improved the most is also in a remote location - although 50 kms. from the province capital, the road is difficult even during the dry season. At best it takes 4 - 6 hours to travel that distance, provided that another truck hasn't block the way or the two big rivers you have to cross can be forded.

After these trips, I like to go down to the river to relax.

Watch the tiny water skaters dancing around the clouds.

And watch the big water skaters walking home after a day of working in the rice fields or forest, and taking a bath in the cold fresh water.

This is my contribution to Sky Watch Friday, which now has its own blog at this new location. For the last few weeks, it has gained in popularity, which meant that it needed its own space to grown. Go over there to see the best in the skies around the world.
