Skywatch Friday No. 45: A Stormy Afternoon

Today is a typical summer day in Taipei.  It was very humid and hot in the morning and by the lunch time we could see a gathering storm coming.  Some loud thunders and shower ensued.  Some parts of Taipei actually had hail.  During a short break of the storm, I went out to the garden to photograph some plumeria flowers after the rain.  I saw the apartment building on the opposite hill under the sun from a small break of the cloud.  The air was very clean due to the rain.  I thought it looks great against the stormy sky.

The lighting in this shot is great. The white building almost shines against that blue sky.

That's very interesting. Pity I can't hear the thunder. Would be nice to have sound effect heard on the blogosphere. Have a nice day. It's actually evening here.
