Skywatch Friday: Approaching Storm

Storm Clouds Approaching 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 for my Skywatch post.  In 1987, on my way to China for the first time, I was able to spend a few days in Bali.  Our group stayed at a place on the beach and we were able to enjoy the sky, sand and sea.  Late one afternoon I was on the beach just before a storm came in.  I like the light breaking through the clouds and the ridges in the sand.

    This looks pretty intense.

    I must admit that the sky is not my favorite part about this picture. I love the ridges in the sand, how bizarre! Whatever is causing that? Also the water, and when you click, there’s a surprise. Way out on the water, there’s a tiny boat!

    Another breathtaking photo! That sky looks so gorgeous, but a little scary, too. I’d love to visit Bali someday, though – even if I had to brave a few storms.

    Bali? WoW! How’d you like Indonesia? It has to be just beautiful on the beaches that far south in the middle of the ocean like that!
    Looks very ominous, indeed!

    It is very dramatic! Looks like there’s a little sailboat out there, too. Nice memory!
