Palm fronds bisect a tropical blue sky. Shot beachside, on the tropical island of Langkawi, Malaysia, in 2008. (1,925 views on 28 August 2014.)

I had to wait about 18 hours for this shot. The sky was stormy to start with, but I reckon the patience was worth it.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F9.5, 1/500th sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

Featured in MAGNIFICENT MACROS, December 2010.
