Sky-Watch, Friday: a tropical storm in summer



Dark clouds over Mauban as our outrigger boat left the pier. Scud clouds loomed across the horizon as we approached Cagbalete Island. There was no storm forecast but as unpredictable as our weather has become, I was not surprised to see thunderstorms in the middle of summer.

Oh my, what is that little boat out there? Looks crowdy. Love the colours!

You live on a very beautiful island or at least you visited a real gem of an island. That´s the way I see it, no matter what the weather was.

Nothing scarier than a thunderstorm when you're out in the water! I LOVE the boat silhouette. It makes the water seem vast, the boat very small in comparison.

Peering through those ominous clouds is hope trying to shine through it seems.

Both beautiful shots. I love the green water in the first one.

I love both photos - very moody. The one with the boat full of people is lovely.

Very nice! In the top one the gloomy skies really makes the green stand out and look extremely bright.

i love the header luna. it seems that we were once sharing a same spot in front of that lovely beach. glad you enjoyed mauban/cabalete as much as i do.

ganun na ganun din nung nandun kami. kaya siguro hindi ganun ka dami ang pumupunta sa cagbalete dahil sa unpredictable weather doon.

hi, dong! medyo weird talaga ang weather ngayon, di lang sa cagbalete, i'm sure. i talked to some guests of the resort who were there a few times, they're friends of the owner. ayos naman daw ang weather dati, although there was a time when the waves surged past the leafless tree.

luna miranda said...

thank you, lawstude. na-inspire ako sa mga sunrise shots mo kasi.:D at dahil di ko kayang gumising ng maaga, sa hapon ko naman nakuha yong photo sa header.:D
