I’m a sucker for light but water sucks me more. Please excuse the ugly feet.

Two of my favorite features of Snapseed are the HDR Scape and the Drama. This may seem to be [a bit] over-processed but I just adjusted the originals (which were dull) to match as how it was actually this morning.
It is curious how the heavy, dark clouds are forming around Yanbu, and accumulating on the visible horizon, above the Red Sea (west to south) and beyond the mountains (north to east).
This could be an indication of the current weather pattern happening in some parts of the peninsula like in the capital Riyadh and the city of Jeddah, south of Yanbu, where heavy rains have caused floods.
If there is foodporn, there must be clouds and sky lights porn, too.

warning: explicit words

never (or if ever, rarely) do i say or mention that the snaps i post are beautiful. or even the subject alone —‘a beautiful tree’, ‘a beautiful sun’ ‘sky’, blah blah. beauty is subjective. what i thought beautiful might not be for others. i just keep it to myself, let the pictures do the talking.

earlier, I had to beg (exaggeration) for my colleagues to wait for me before leaving the hotel so i could go back to my room and get the camera to capture the colors of the sky (not the pictures above. the sun was still hiding then.)

saudi sky is cloudless for most days of the year. clouds are only forming heavily, or (let’s start) beautifully, during these days when the season changes from summer to winter. signs of season change includes rain and sandstorm, and these two could happen simultaneously —imagine the disaster to your newly washed car if you didn’t consider the forecast.

since the first yanbu rain (and thunderstorms), clouds have been almost always present. this morning was particularly breathtaking for me. orgasmic. i was cursing and really oohing and aahhing and moaning and gasping on the way to the office, just by staring at the sky. putang ina kako. shit. fck. ganda. my colleagues prolly found it weird. (by the way, photos above are from the phone, processed in snapseed). photogasming on every snap.

i felt tired (like the good kind of tired) when we reached the office. it’s rare like that.
