Photographer's Note

Imagine sitting at the top level of one of the Petronas Twin Towers. The early morning sunshine has suddenly been replaced by a prodigious cover of dark clouds; the whole city of Kuala Lumpur is under siege from a tropical storm. The clouds are now hovering over your office, it will begin to splash rain over the city soon. You look out, as if you're on the clouds, as if you're at one with Nature, looking after the humanity that is below.....


This is the second of a series of photographs I took during a short visit to Kuala Lumpur over this weekend. I was having lunch on the KL Tower's Angcasa Restaurant when I saw this huge storm approaching the city, and I snatched my camera when I saw the clouds over the Twin Towers, the second tallest buildings in the world today (after Taipei 101 in Taiwan). Seeing how the Towers take this storm (which occurs frequently in the tropics) is indeed a refreshing perspective. Hope you like it!
