Thailand Summer Storm

Thanks for all the comments on my stream. Here are Your Favorite shots from my stream. Thanks again!

 

This looks nice: Large on Black

 

I was blessed (do Buddhists "bless"?) in Thailand with good clouds for HDR pictures. In this one, there was one of those afternoon thunderstorms rolling in about 3 PM. However, the weather there is so hopelessly humid, that there is a fine line between regular humidity and torrential downpour.

 

After about ten minutes walking around Bangkok, I was covered in sweat and grime. Not the good kind of grime either - the Bangkok kind. I'm normally someone that doesn't like to be covered in sweat, but you just kinda give up after a few minutes and decide to wallow in it. Even through the sweat, or perhaps because of it, a few locals there thought I was David Beckham, since it is well known that all white people look alike.

    "After about ten minutes walking around Bangkok, I was covered in sweat and grime."

    May I ask how you managed to take a shot of Phra Pathom Chedi in Bangkok? Considering it is actually in Nakhon Pathom...approximately 70km west of Bangkok.
  • Kyaw Sithu 6y

    Colors are elegant. I like how you take the cloud covers the sun light.
