Sky Watch Friday > Before a Heavy Rain

Yesterda I went to Jakarta, to attend a meeting about the geothermal energy at Directorate General of Mineral, Coal and Geothermal. I went back to Bandung at about 4 pm, and I was amazed when I saw the sky was that heavy. I took this photo just some seconds before the heavy rain suddenly came, forcing us to slow our car down from 120 km/hour to 30-40 km/hour.

Happy SWF! Don't forget to visit other SWF pictures here.

The way the clouds are reaching down and touching the earth with their angry-self makes a nice photo!

Very brooding, threatening sky. Wish we had such rainclouds. Love the headlights of the car.
