Rain Clouds [SWF]

Kapurpurawan @ mirandablue
While exploring Kapurpurawan rock, we had one eye at the sky for signs of an oncoming rain.  Rain clouds threatened the horizon but when the rain finally did fall, we were caught by surprise.  This is an open coastal area without any nearby shelter.  We ran about two hundred yards to the nearest hut---I have no idea how we managed the rocky and swampy terrain in the dark without falling on our faces.  It was a scene straight out from a comedy version of "The Day After Tomorrow".:p

The sky DES look threatening. I really like how you've shown the sand being eaten away in the first photo.

I like how you framed your photos to show your gray skies, Luna. Interesting rock formations. This too looks like a unique place in the PI.
