Monsoon clouds are fascinating and not predictable at all. Suddenly they build up and form huge "towers" like in this photograph of the container terminal of Butterworth opposite the Island of Penang. This seasonal phenomena of huge cumulus clouds formation, most of the time white but also gray to black, is one of the great natural happening in all regions with monsoon.

Ah, Urs, I am sure these are the same monsoon clouds that drift over us in Chonburi. It is a nice atmospheric shot with an interesting composition. regards kevin

ce ciel est aussi magnifique qu'immpressionnant. Tu nous offre de belles lumières malgré ce grans manque de soleil. Une surface d'eau qui penche un peu à gauche.
My best regards.

Not the conventional type of composition through the very big sky.
But absolutely not bad through the fantastic clouds to the sky.
Good composition, sharpness and clarity are superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Very impressive photo, with very "bold" composition, leaving so much space for the sky is quite unusual, but it surely was the right choice with so impressive clouds! Great light management!

Yeap, here too, I can see the monsoon clouds at city, it can form very fast, clouds less at morning, but suddenly heavy raining at afternoon, good vertical format to show architectures become small under the big clouds, thanks for sharing.

The two cranes in a distance are real eye-catchers, even for me a cloud guy!
And the rainy season is well visible in the sky, it may pour down later in the afternoon...

The monsoon cloud is here again and almost everyday for the past week. You have registered this shot nicely in tall frame and those big cranes looks like some robotic monster along the horizon.
