The start of a humid season is usually indicated by very unpredictable weather of sudden rain and clearing up of clouds. July and August are when typhoons hit Hong Kong, and for now, there are times when the rain suddenly pours down so hard, I can get drenched in a matter of minutes if I am unlucky and get caught in the sudden downpour.
Just the other day, I walked out of my apartment to an overcast sky with no rain, after a few minutes of waiting at the bus stop, the rainy drizzled down. As I opened my umbrella, the drizzle has turned into a complete downpour! The back of my shirt, my hair, and my jeans are completely wet! Like other people lining up at the bus stop, we all have no choice but to run back home to dry ourselves and wait out the sudden storm.
Even the typhoons seem a little weird this year, it could hit the city directly with heavy winds, but then it will suddenly die down like it never happened. Very unpredictable weather lately, but I got to tell you, the sky looks so amazing.
I took a couple of shots from my living room–the changing colors and cloud movements are taken over the course of a week, not a day, hees.
a typical bright, clear, and sunny day in HK
the sky is unbelievbly blue and clear white clouds
can seethe grey clouds rolling in to blanket over the blue sky
the rain is about the come down
a cloudy and foggy day, the tall building (international financial center) is shrouded in the clouds
caught the setting sun before it fades away for the day
the setting sky's colors are so breathtakingly beautiful
nighttime and rain in setting in
and the rain pelts down
