Raining at the Sea

Have a nice weekend!
I hope it is not too cold for fiends at the Northern Hemisphere....

Taken at beach of Manokwari, early in the morning. Thick clouds are commonly seen during rainy season in Indonesia, to suggest that rain may fall at anytime. In this picture, it seems the rain already falling at the sea, perhaps heavy rain, but not a storm.

More note related to this beach and Manokwari was presented in my previous postings in this travelogue series.

Otra maravilloso paisaje Ben con colores casi irreales.
Me encanta el punto de vista y el encuadre elegido, con un ápice de playa asomando.
La división aproximada a la mitad entre el cielo y el mar, produce un equilibrio muy agradable estéticamente.
Sobrio marco para completar una presentación de calidad.
Mis mejores deseos... Ricardo

Another wonderful landscape Ben with almost unreal colors.
I love the point of view and the elected framing, with a beach apex appearing.
The approximate division in half between the sky and the sea, produces a balance very pleasant aesthetically.
Sober frame to complete a presentation of quality.
My best wishes... Ricardo

Hello Benyamin,
Fortunatly for me, I'm in a similar latitude than you, so no cold by here...
Almost umbelievable the color of the water, spaecially with that dark and menacing sky...
I like a lot the composition, the frame and the overal presentation,
I'll put Manokwari in my list of places to visit some day.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

Hello Benyamin,
amazing seascape; sharpness, colors, light, composition, everything is excellent !

the lighting here is quite surreal
a feeling of an impending storm and some security as we stand on the beach..
sky really is ominous

Hi Ben.
Unusual and nice colour palette of your seascape. Amazing clouds and their reflection into the water, wonderful composition and presentation. My regards and TFS.

Hi Ben,
It is getting a bit colder, but looking at your photo, I got warm again. Love the soft lighting in the sky and the empty composition. Just whish it was a tad sharper.

Hi Ben. I like the blues you have captured and presented so well here. The framing style is excellent. It would be good to experiment with raising and lowering the horizon if you are at this place again. Simple and very good to see this seascape. Murray.
