SWF - 31 July 09


It's been six weeks since I last posted. I've been un-well, I suspect dengue fever. Fever, fatigue and whole-body aches. I have had zero enthusiasm about everything, even lifting my camera up. Fortunately, it's going away and I find myself with both the strength to carry my camera around, and the interest in looking at things and saying, "I'd like a picture of that."


Sky over Salavan on 12 July. The clouds look like nebulae.

moon at night

The same evening - the moon looking through my window. Even though it's two days past full, it still looks big and round through the clouds.

red light and river

The red glow at sunset at the Vientiane waterfront of the Mekong River. People like to sit by the river in the evening to relax, drink smoothies or eat other snacks.

boats floating in sky

And the sunset in the Xedon river in Pakse. The boats look like they are floating in the sky.

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