Skywatch Friday for 19 September
Life has been too busy on this side of the world, so I'm catching up with some sky shots from the past two weeks.
The first set of pictures are from Salavan. On Monday, the 15th, the day after the full moon, Salavan had it's boat racing festival. More on that on the blog post. It was much nicer looking at the people, the boats, the water and the sky rather than looking at our feet. It thunderstormed the night before and most of the morning, just clearing before the boat racing.
This is the view looking downriver, towards the municipal water system.
Because of the crowds, the heat and the mud, we stayed only for two races. Vapy vs. Pakse is shown here.
And just past the finish:
A good time was shared by all.
September is the rainiest month here - constant rain, some clearing then thunderstorms. Here's the view behind my house one evening:
As soon as I saw the rainbow, I went running outside.
Although the double rainbow did stretch across the sky, by the time I was in a place where I could get a good picture of it, the rain started to come down harder and the rainbow had lost its glint.
This is my contribution to fun group of people who post pictures of the skies from all around the world. For more pix, go to Skywatch Friday
