Dark Cloud on Slili Beach ~ Sky Sunday

This morning I along with my brother-in-law arrived in Jogjakarta to do some organizational affairs and a few other matters until the next two days. Some cousins picked me up at the airport after they know that I would be in their city then took me home for they did not allow me to stay at the hotel.

After lunch, they took me around the city to recall the past when I visited them in my teens. Yes, we have never met again since then even though I travel to that city quite often. In the afternoon they took me to Slili Beach. The beach was quite empty of visitors because it was already late, besides most of the people in my country that are predominantly Muslims are fasting since the past seven days to the next three weeks.

Since we arrived at the beach, the clouds have closed the sky. Approaching dusk the clouds were getting darker but I think I was lucky because the scenery became so beautiful. Of course, it also gave me the opportunity to share the same sky in another place from my country.

Bit unfortunate that we didn’t stay too long on the beach because my cousin’s wife felt a little worried about the dark cloud. Well, at least I have decent pictures to share in Sky Sunday, right?

      • You are welcome for the compliment. Yes, I do know the type of cloud formation that is called. It is a roll cloud. It can carry high winds, rain, lightening, and tornadoes.
        I am afraid when I feel threatened by storms. They will make you humble if you weren’t already after you have seen a few tornadoes up close and personal.

  3. I live in an archipelago surrounded by bodies of water. Getting caught by sudden change of weather like squall amidst the sea while crossing from island to island is a usual thing. And yes, Yogya is a nice place. I love the street food there – – – different from Bali’s.

  4. I love the mix of sky, clouds, and beach you captured. I often ask myself if I am afraid of some things too much.

    It is a tough Albert Monday question.

    I do believe that fear limits us. Being afraid can be bad. But the side of fear is caution. I guess my friend, I cannot answer your question. I don’t know if you can fear too much.

    • It seems like at that moment nature has welcomed me with its special forms.

      I strongly agree that fear limits us, in many ways. It is true that fear as a basic instinct gives us caution, but I think caution is also very relative, either very logical and unreasonable.

      Walking in this path, as far as the steps that have been taken, I have started the question from the estuary of all scared, am I afraid to die? and question all the answers and reasons because it seems that more people are afraid of life than fear of dying.

  5. Great capture, nothing much except rain and wind happens here in NZ but cant say it is like that in another place I don’t know much about
    Yes, we have only sheet lightning rarely if any forked lightning.
    Today it is been exceptionally windy so my back yard had plenty of Chokos. A bonus because I don’t have to reach up with a rake to get them

    • That’s impressive, isn’t it?
      Yes, indeed we have to be cautious.
      Yes, in general, people in our country highly uphold kinship. I prefer to be independent in hotels for I’ll be free but manners require that we approve the request or we will be considered haughty or arrogant.
