Storm Over Makati

with 11 comments

“Very ominous-looking clouds loom over the Makati skyline”

So I have this thing for taking pictures outside of windows so whenever I see a window I usually gravitate towards it and take pictures of whatever is outside. This particular set of pictures was taken from a window in a high rise building in Taguig.  They show the Makati (financial centre of the Philippines) skyline before and during a rain storm.  Now, these types of cloud formations are very common in the Philippines, seeing that it is in the tropics. But when I showed these pictures to my friends here in Canada, they thought that there was some big disaster coming; weather extremes are really rare here in Toronto.  Although, I wouldn’t really blame them because these clouds do look very ominous and threatening.

“Part 2 – Downpour!”

“Part 3 – The clouds have nearly taken over the sky”

“Part 4 – The clouds have taken over”
