Mammatus clouds

This photo is not about the Kyaik Tan Lan Pagoda (which although is nice) but the clouds. They are pretty rare cloud type called mammatus clouds and they usually appear during hard core thunders storms and tornadoes. I’ve never ever seen them before and was supers toked to see them. Unfortunately they appeared pretty late in the evening so I couldn’t get suberb photo of them. I actually saw them twice near Mawlamyine in Myanmar. The skies were really dramatic many times there.

Tip: When you take a photos of buildings, landscapes or basically any subject that has open sky behind it, pay some attention to sky because dramatic clouds can really make the picture.
