Visitors to the tropics would have realized that the weather changes dramatically in a matter of hours (or minutes even), and here you have it - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital city, was suddenly enveloped by dark clouds. The whole city suddenly appeared under a specter of grey, which is quite a sight to behold from a bird's eye view. Does this look like some Hollywood movie scene to you?
This is the third - and final - of a series of shots I'll post here on this storm over Kuala Lumpur. I was right up on KL Tower when I saw this storm approaching. From the white background, you could almost see what the weather was like before this prodigious swathe of dark clouds took over. And the Petronas Twin Towers, ever so majestic, look to be the first to take the storm on. Talk about being at one with Nature! :)

Greetings Kean. Grey is the colour and it's most dramatic. It's as if the city is being enveloped in some spell. Yes, it has echoes of The Lord of the Rings. Anyway, technically speaking, the vista (PoV)is great, but where were you standing? Regards Klaudio.

Interesting shot during an almost storm.
Well placed towers and nice diagonal by the way.
I do not see much differences between the two last shots!

Lucky to see such interesting weather from here - very moody photo and well-taken.
I prefer this one to your other shot - better composition and frame.

Nice panorama view of the city here. The grey dominating colour makes it look like the city rapresented in a science movie. Good perspective and composition.

Another showering image of the majestially KLCC an its surrounding city of life.
Yeah, from your angle view, you must have enjoy the breathtaking semi-aerial view of thie cool and hectic city.
And I do hope that one day, if I'm in KL, I would like to give you a call and have this opportunity to snap a few shots from this angle, is it okay!!
Cheers and good day, Lim.
