Sky Watch Friday 29 May

The weather has moved into rainy season, at a much faster gallop than last year. The skies are either crystal clear or covered with thunderclouds.

Day 121 strange light 2

Although I haven't had much chance to post over the past month, I'm still taking pictures. I snapped the above picture on a moody late afternoon, where thunderclouds were directly overhead but the light from the sunset lit up the Buddhist temple from the side.

And a very luminous sunset over the Mekong river, looking over Thailand.

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

The 1st photo is just so gorgeous and the 2nd really gives a good view. Excellent SWF!

Great photos! =) I love how the light in the first one frames the spire of the temple and then the soothing calm in the second one.

Beautiful photographs. I was in Laos a few years ago and was blown away by the beauty. Keep the images coming!

A VERY moody first shot. I'd rather be in the second! Lovely photos.
