SWF - 10 April 2009


Bangkok haze was thick last week - though it started raining every day. Not just rain but the kind of deluge which makes you think that the whole atmosphere is coming down. It did bring down the dust and pollution, so the clouds building up on the weekend were very impressive against a clean sky.

This photo was taken between the Champa trees. The Champa flower is the national flower of Laos - though there are none in this picture.

I'm posting a bit early this week because it's after midnight and I can't sleep. The night is hot, humid and sticky. Hot season.

This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday, whose members post pictures of the skies around the world.

Love the light in the first one - and the antennas sneaking into the picture!

Love the cloud, looks like I have same photo but I just couldn't remember which CD it was.

BTW, I have an award for you at my blog. Go check and collect it. Hope you do like it.

It looks very hot through those leaves. Nice perspective.

I love the moon between the leaves.
