Hello dear Folks!

I wish you all having good days... :)
Here I present you the shot from off the coast of Vietnam. The morning just at sunrise I found this beautiful and isolated cumulonimbus cloud at the horizon rising high to the sky. The cloud is among the Cumulus group and this one is associated with heavy rain, called Squall but in the particular which it is covering.
I hope you will like the shot.

Thanks for your views,
Best Regards,

Hi Ali,

That is quite a huge cloud formation, nicely captured. The water/sky balance works well since the cloud is the main attraction. The lighting and lovely blue skies create a very pleasing shot.

Best regards,

Namaste Ali ji,

A well formed cumulonimbus cloud is well captured in this beautiful composition!
The sharpness and POV are well thought, and clarity is amazing.
The repetitive tiny cloud formations add another charm into the shot.
Well shown colors and nice focus.
Good work!

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Hello Ali,

I can see why you were interested in filming this. There nis a most unusual relationship between the sea and the sky, almost as if the clouds are gently surfing!
You have captured it all with great clarity and a fine sense of composition.
Well done!

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)
