Dramatic Storm Clouds over Bangkok

Dramatic Storm Clouds over Bangkok

Today (Tuesday) is a Thai holiday: Asaha Puja Day. See http://sunsite.au.ac.th/thailand/special_event/asalha/index.html for more information on one of the most sacred days of the year.

The weather was fine in the morning but in the afternoon waves of rain swept over the city. I think there were four heavy rainstorms separated by calm periods.

Here’s a panorama of five photos I shot from the apartment between storms. I used Photoshop CS4 to stitch them and then some of my free Seim Effects to heighten the drama of the view. Is that cheating?

I should post something about Seim effects soon. I think they are a bit like the Schilling spice blends you can buy in grocery stores. Used judiciously they can enhance a meal, but excessive use overwhelms a dish.
