Luang Prabang for me was a place of wonder... the daily rhythm and feel was amazing. Take a local boat across the Mekong and you can visit the lovely village of Ban Xieng Man, which is situation on the other shore.
This photo was composed and shot very quickly to capture the great cloud formations and deep blue sky.
Once again I'm running a little low of suitable stuff to show. This is mostly down to the fact I've not been out to get any new stuff for a while, thanks to the wonders of final year at university.

I like strong clouds like these, always a lot of depth and high contrast and saturation.
Well seen en well taken...great work..!!!

Beautiful sky and a low viewpoint highlights the blue expanse.
The filter almost makes the clouds 3D!
