A Ray of Hope, Hopefully

After a long stretch of dry spell, the rain is back in Kuching, as it should. I caught the ray of the sun bursting out from behind the clouds.

I'd like to see it as a divine sign of hope for us Malaysians, a sign of change much needed in this corrupted nation of ours.

A Very Special Ordinary Day

These are your typical, everyday, ordinary, plain Jane, friendly neighbourhood afternoon clouds in Kuching.

And today is the first day of Gawai celebrations (although I think the binging has started way before). Please remember to turn up for work on Monday.

Happy Gawai to all those who are celebrating!

Sky On Fire

I read that the dry season will probably be with us till September. In terms of getting good cloud pictures, that's great news. But I think my electricity bills will shoot up, along with petrol prices. Sunny Hill's frosties & Yong Su's Korean ice cream will definitely be doing brisk business.

Here are Kuching skies on fire.

Sunset Over Kuching

I was privileged to have caught these formation. Can't remember when I took them but I don't think they happened on the same day.

More Blue Skies

Okay. It's been a while since I last posted but worry not, for I have been secretly keeping this hobby up, snapping when no one was looking. There were times when the clouds were rare and in hiding, but there were also times when they came out in abundance. And now, the story continues...

I haven't been looking up at the sky lately so I've missed quite a number of good days. However I caught this one sometime ago. 

Presenting Altocumulus. Sounds like a transformer doesn't it?

An Evening with Clouds

In my very limited experience of shooting clouds,I can safely say that the best ones come out in the evenings, at the end of a super hot sunny day.

Rolling Clouds

Zeus, the mighty Greek God of the Sky rode by in his lighting fast chariot, leaving a trail of clouds.

That sounded romantic.

But maybe what actually happened was a mighty kancil just sped by in the sky.

Clouds at Noon

Looking up at the sky in a hot sunny afternoon is not something that I can or want to do too often here in Kuching. Unless if I love getting migraines.

However there was this one afternoon where even though the sun was out in full force, it somehow didn't feel to be as hot. Maybe after a few weeks of non-stop rain, the sun was somehow neutralised, tamed & domesticated. These were the clouds on that afternoon.

Blue Clouds

I've always been puzzled when kids colour clouds light blue. It didn't make sense.

But now I can see why.
Those little buggers were right.

Atomic Cloud

I'm a happy puppy now cos the sun has decided to come out to play in these last few days before the Chinese New Year, and clouds abound in the sky.

I thought these looked like a double atomic bomb.

See how much it looks like the real deal Nagasaki atomic bomb cloud?

Either that or they look like macaroons, which sounds more comforting.
At this moment I think I need one now, and everything is beginning to look like them.

Tim Burton Cloud

It has been pretty impossible to see any clear skies for the past, I don't know, 2 weeks of non-stop rain. It even got me to the point of thinking maybe I should start a new Rain Over Kuching blog. But the heavens decided to put a stop to that. 

Yesterday, the sun finally came out  and I snapped. Pictures, that is.

This bunch of clouds turned out to be a bit surreal, sort of Tim-Burton-Charlie-and-the-Chocolate-Factory like. It looks like the grey skies just refuses to leave in the background.

Spare Clouds

It's been raining so much in Kuching & if it doesn't stop, I'll be running out of cloud pictures. But I managed to dig out a couple of spare ones to share.
