The view from our balcony to the northern parts of Kuala Lumpur during one of the thunderstorms that roll through the Klang Valley during the monsoon season.
The typical building with its dome and Neo-classical architecture, called the Menara Milenium aka Milennium Tower, is my favorite building in view and reminds me of New York and other cities around Europe and America.
Impressario of photographic orchestration…lovely
AMAZING! This one is one of those photos I would instantly frame and put on my wall.
Sturm und Drang…it’s a bit ominous with a glint of hope and it’s a fabulous shot.
Wow, such amazing. I love it!!
Stunning image, really love the mood and the dark tones.
Prachtige dreiging met lichtpuntje, Ron.
You may have noticed I’ve been too busy recently to keep up with the blogging world but had to have a quick peek this morning 🙂 This is fabulous and made the slow download (rubbish internet!) well worthwhile!
Hi Noeline, no worries, hope you´re nice busy?
Same here, didnt spend too much time on blogging lately, enjoying tropical getaways too much 😉
All the best to you,
that is a marvellously atmospheric image. great work indeed.
Wow… this is stunning, Ron!
Enjoy your weekend, my friend.
Thanks, Malin, its a stunning spectacle as well!
You have a great weekend too, amiga 😉
The title says it all Ron – expect a call from Bruce’s lawyers 😉
Gotham; and where is the Batman!
I really love this shot. Love it to pieces. This is what it’s all about.
That is stunning. Thanks for the like of my Weekly Photo Challenge post “Containers”.
I would find being there in monsoon season like living through the end of the world every afternoon!
Hi Judith, definitely feels like that now the (small) rain season is upon us again, i´m amazed on a daily basis by how black and dark green some clouds can look and the sounds of very nearby thunder still makes me jump up, but the drama from my view is unbeatable 😉
All the best ot you,
Wow, wat een sfeer!
splendid … dreamy …
What a great, moody shot. Nice!!
Just perfect. Stunning image!
Wow, a powerful shot…great lighting & contrast. For me, there is nothing quite as exciting than a big storm moving in…I do not know why I feel this way, and sometimes feel guilty about it, but the power of nature I find just awe inspiring.
What a great shot – much more interesting than if you had captured this in the sun.
Fabulous shot Ron!
I agree-very atmospheric and mysterious-terrific work!
Reblogged this on Amazing Fine Art.
Wederom hartelijk dank, Della! Het begint momenteel weer met eind van de dag regen en onweer, dus misschien heb ik binnenkort wel weer wat in petto 😉
Dank terug Ron, ik wens je succes 🙂
Awesome shot. Funny but when I was in that town I went up on a roof and got some dramatic shots of a sunset.
Thanks and yeah thats very well possible, the rains come like clockwork at around 5pm during rain season and leave a dramatic sky to the reappearing sun to set around 7:30pm 😉
(As I write this there is a big forest fire going on just in front of those flats in the back on the right in the middle of the city!)
This is so wonderfully dramatic.
Thank you very much, Lisa, it´s such an amazing sight when Mother nature drops by with its sheer power 😉
Have a good weekend, greetings
Gorgeous shot, Ron. Fantastic atmosphere. Like bleak foreboding made concrete.
Thanks Richard, it seems the raining and thunder season is starting again, so there are more dark skies ahead 😉
All the best to you, Ron
Great shot Ron……moody and atmospheric.
Thanks very much, Mark! The views are always amazing but with weather like this it becomes very spectacular, so many times we see thunder all thru the night over the mountains far away; our own lightshow 😉
Have a great weekend, Ron.
Thank you very much, Amy, such an amazing show mother nature puts on sometimes…
Have a great weekend, Ron.
It really stands out. Dramatic skyline. I had no idea you are enjoying such grandiose views 🙂
Hi Paula, holidaaaayyyy (for starters)! Would you believe this is just a real small part of it (you can tell from the 90mm), its unbelievable wide and far and even the skyline of KL with its twin towers; one day I´ll post one of the zillion photos i took from our balcony, if I only knew which one to choose 😉
Love the contrast in this. You have a magnificent view from your balcony!
Hello and thanks, Simon! The view is incredible, 180 degrees and towards the mountains and central KL with its Petronas towers 😉
Have a great weekend, Ron.
Nice image. Great drama. Specially in BW
Gracias Luis, it was almost B&W when I shot it, so that decision was not very difficult 😉
I bet. Some images just work in bw
The “grey” situation that I ‘d capture you turn it to outstanding. Congrats.
Oh, this was far from grey, black and white and contrasty, I was lucky to wait for this formations forming 😉
Muchas gracias, Fran, y saludos
Beautiful capture! Muy Bueno!!
Muchas gracias, Carlos 😉
It´s very easy when you don´t even have to leave your house to wait for the right light and day to get it right!
Hope all is going well, greetz, Ron
Great photo, great title!
Thanks, i like to take my titles from songs, movies sometimes, and yeah this song from the Boss is a favorite of mine…
Greetings from Malaysia, Ron.
Thanks you, Debi, very kind of you to comment, made me smile 😉
Great feel! Great image!
Thanks very much, Heather, I´m very happy to hear some of that feel comes across.
Thats pretty amazing. Did you enhance it?
Only converted to Black and white and some contrast for added drama, so that cloud does appear a bit darker, but you won´t believe how dark it gets during these storms 😉
All the best ot you, enjoy the Dutch summer!
Love that photo. I stared at it for a long time Ron!
Haha, thats great to hear, thats what I do in real life when this unfolds too 😉
I would be mesmerized !
The light on the Menara Milenium is fantastic; it has such an elegant and eerie look to it.
Thanks, Angeline, that light in that little tower always fascinates me; it always seems to catch the last rays of sun, that almost all the time appear after the late afternoon storms 😉
Have a great weekend, greetings, Ron.
Love the light…a great ‘almost-silhouette’
Thank you, Sue, there´s not too much light when these clouds storm by 😉
Actually was lucky to get this as they´re busy building a new tower next to it and cranes are in the way now…
Have a great week, all the best from KL,
Impressive Ron, great atmosphere.
Dank je, Chris, ik vind het altijd geweldig om die stormen over te zien komen, heel indrukwekkend, maar harder dan ik ooit zag en hoorde zo dichtbij 🙂
Het ziet er bijna apocalyptisch uit en zal zeer heftig weer zijn! Maar prachtig als je er veilig naar kunt kijken en foto’s maken! Meer!!
Haha, ja, heb er aardig wat (moelijk fotograferen met donker-licht contrasten, maar zal nog es in archieven graven…), maar vond deze toch wel opvallendst en meest apocalyptisch, zoals je zegt.
Het echte heftige regen en onweer-seizoen is rond dec/jan, elke dag feest en mooier entertainment vanaf ons balkonnetje kan ik me niet bedenken 😉
Ik kijk met verlangen uit naar meer!! 🙂
I really love it ❤ !
Danke sehr, Anni, darkness can be pretty sometimes 😉
Stunning view 🙂 A very atmospheric image!
Thanks very much, Alexandra, it´s only a small part of it 😉 but I thought like this it worked best as a composition!
Hope all is great in Greece?!
