Skywatch Friday for 26 September


It's getting to the end of the rainy season so the skies are dramatic - gray mornings followed by clear skies. We have some great sunsets like this one:

sunset on Mekong

I took the above picture of the Mekong River from the levee near my house.

Sybounheung Buddha

The villagers built a wall of sandbags to protect these Buddha images from the floods. The hacked Bodhi tree and the sandbags give the temple a besieged look.


I took this picture in the early morning earlier this week. Rainy season is coming to an end.

This is my contribution to an international group of people who post pictures of skies over at Skywatch Friday

Thank you for sharing these photos. Floods must be so much worse than fire, with fire there is a great and dirty clean up but at least no silt or rotting carpets and memories.
I'm glad local action saved the Buddhas.

Love your skies. The first photo is magnificent!

Hey Chanpenh - thanks for reading and for leaving a comment.

I've looked at your blog(s) as well. Must say, I'm a bit envious of one who lives in Xieng Khouang... I haven't been there since 1994. Expect it's changed some.

Thanks again. Keep checking back.
