Stormy Weather

07 Apr

Thunderstorms brewing in tropical Singapore

They say the best natural light is before or after a storm. April, May and November are the peak months for thunderstorms in Singapore. Go outdoors but beware of stormy weather that bring along thunder and lightning. Do you know that Singapore has the second highest rate of lightning strikes in the world? That is the hazard of living so near the equator.

This picture is a little dark and moody. Cumulonimbus clouds signaling an oncoming storm. I could not decide if that dark shape in the cloud is a snake, dragon, lizard or a shark? Looks like it is breathing fire on the land. Such brooding premonition.

      Thanks for your comments, Michael. Black and white textures and tones capture more of the essence of the moment I think. I love colors too. Yours simply bring out the vibrancy through the computer screen.

      The weather is great for storm watching now. The black and white pictures just emphasis the “drama”.
