SkyWatch Friday: Approaching Storm

A storm approaching the island of Bali. June, 1987.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

I went to my archives to get this picture of an afternoon storm approaching the island of Bali.  You can see some sail boats at the extreme right of the photo — they were hurrying to the beach before the storm hit.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

    Bali in Indonesia?? Storms make the sky dramatic. I feel sorry for all the people affected by the tornados. I hope you keep safe.

    I enlarged it, too, and the sailboats are beautiful as is the water! Terrific capture, George! Enjoy your weekend — hopefully it will be storm free!! Stay safe!

    I don’t blame those people on the boat. To be caught in the middle of the sea with the storm is like counting your life to be done soon, ^_^ Thanks for sharing and happy weekend1

    I can see the little boats. I like this picture because the sky and sea are all the same color.

    That would not be a good place to be in a storm. It sure is a beautiful photo George. Have a safe and nice weekend. Will you be grilling out?

    Ah George – great memories of holidays in Bali.
    Afternoon storms were the “norm” – they didn’t last long!

    Cheers
