Clouds Before The Storm

a long holiday in cuba was a wonderful way to blow off steam. this was taken during the first few days of that june holiday. after spending an incredible day at the beach, i went along the shoreline in the early evening to take some shots. on my return to the hotel (pictured), there were some beautiful clouds forming as the sun was setting.

sunset explosion

Sunset Explosion

on one of the first couple of nights in varadero, cuba i climbed to the top of the puntarena hotel to catch the sunset. there were a couple of military personnel there and thought they were going to ask me to leave… but they did not. we communicated with lots of hand gestures as I do not speak spanish and they did not speak english.

as the sunset was starting to work its magic, I went back to my tripod and camera and captured this beautiful, albeit ominous looking cloud formation.
