Grey skies over Prambanan
The title says it all, really. I made two trips to the Hindu temple of Prambanan while I was in Java. On the first visit, the heavens opened minutes after I arrived (shortly after the picture above was taken, in fact). On the second, the rain held off, despite the threatening clouds overhead. So no spectacular sunsets, but I think the cloudy skies make for quite dramatic pictures in this case.

Do the shots look better in monochrome, with those brooding clouds?
I did think about that, but in the end I decided to keep them in colour, as that was what I was thinking while I was shooting, and because I didn’t want to lose the faint rosy colour in the sky in the last couple of pictures.
Beautiful beyond words
Yes, overcast can be good! It must have been exciting when the downpour came.
Kind of, though driving the motorbike back to Yogyakarta through the heavy rain wasn’t so much fun!
