Beautiful Sky over Mumbai.

Yesterday, the sky was beautiful. Today it was phenomenal. As if Claude Monet himself had come down and painted this beautiful city a sky to calm fast beating hearts and soothe troubled minds.

(Full view highly recommended.)

Look, I’m a bird, I’m flying. No, I am just lying down on the tank on my building’s terrace :-$


About these clouds:

Altocumulus Clouds (parallel bands or rounded masses)

“Altocumulus may appear as parallel bands or rounded masses (bottom photograph). Typically a portion of an altocumulus cloud is shaded, a characteristic which makes them distinguishable from the high-level cirrocumulus. Altocumulus clouds usually form by convection in an unstable layer aloft, which may result from the gradual lifting of air in advance of a cold front. The presence of altocumulus clouds on a warm and humid summer morning is commonly followed by thunderstorms later in the day. ”


My prediciton about rain came true. Yaay. There was a beautiful rainbow in the sky today. I ran all the way over the crowded station bridge to check it out, but by then it had gone. Nevermind, Pragni has uploaded a picture of the rainbow :-)

    I know the sky was just brilliant. Even today it was surreal. I too took some pictures and was about to share them on Metroblogging but then I saw your post.

    If you want to take a look at my pictures here’s a link.
