Photo of epic sunset and insane cloud formation rising from the sea.

Epic sunset

  • Taken: October 4, 2016 19:01
  • Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh - Map

Epic sunset shot during a flight from Yangon to Dhaka in early october. Bay of Bengal and coast of Dhaka is famous for extremely wide river delta which obviously creates a lot of humidity due to also extremely warm temperatures. I don’t remember never seeing so big cloud tower rising from the sea..especially during sunset. Epic stuff indeed.

Tip: When shootoing clouds from airplane remember to use fast enough shutterspeeds (atleast 1/80) to avoid motion blur in the photos. You are flying atleast 700 km/h so things do more around you even though it might be hard to realise from the plane. 🙂
