Skywatch Friday Post: Bandung's October Late Afternoon Sky





I took this photo of Bandung's October brilliant late afternoon sky last Monday (October 13, 2008) at about 5:00 PM.

The almost shillouette structure at the bottom of the photo is the rock climbing tower at the Faculty of Sports Education campus of the Indonesia University of Education (Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia) in the north of Bandung.

For your information, October is the transition period between the dry season (summer) and the rainy season here. The seasonal change period like this, in my experience, is the time when the sky usually looks brilliant and is "populated" by interesting cloud patterns.

Have a great a weekend, everyone!

Very pretty sky! Of course, I got distracted by the rock climbing tower — that's one thing I'd love to try one of these days.

That is a very high rock tower, but perfect for SWF. I am guessing that I will learn what the rainy season is and you will be sharing in my snowy season. GG. Have a wonderful weekend with your family Eki!!!!!

I haven't commented on your Sky Watch? We are so many participants, that's my excuse.
This Sky looks like a promise for the day after.
Hope the rain will wait a little.
