Myanmar’s iconic U Bein bridge, near the ancient Burmese capital of Amarapura, is a much beloved (and photographed) site among tourists and visitors to this intriguing Southeast Asian nation. Today’s shot, taken by Flickr user American Jon, is a fantastic example of what makes this ancient wooden structure so visually captivating. The teak bridge’s long expanse, when photographed against the early morning/late day sun, makes for a striking silhouette. This particular shot is all-the-more eye-catching due to the dramatic clouds in the background.

Flickr user GogoTheGogo has taken a photo of what looks like the end of a perfect day. The image features a solitary figure in silhouette walking through the grass against a fiery orange sky in Zagreb, Crotia. I love the warm colors, the way the light plays off the little puffs of cloud, and most of all, the anonymity of that lone figure who gets to take this magnificent scene in.

I may be in New York City today, but I’ve got the great outdoors on my mind. In my head I can almost see the towering mountains, smell the crisp scent of pine in the air and hear the faint whistle of birds off in the distance. So when I saw Flickr user oilfighter’s photo of clouds breaking over Yosemite National Park, I knew I had to pick it. This magnificent capture of one of the world’s most famous valleys makes me feel like I was there, nostrils full of fresh air, staring out at this impressive view.

Today’s positively ethereal image comes to us from Flickr user AdamJamesWilson, who captured this sky-high shot of a paraglider over Lake Serre-Poncon in Southeastern France. I love the image’s “vintage” muted colors, wisps of cloud and silhouetted figure all set against a glistening sun.

An attention-grabbing cloud rolled over the city of Austin last night. I spotted the cloud from the kitchen window and proceeded to immediately notify my photographer friend, Ben Britz, in the next room over. The cloud was spinning relatively quickly. It was colored pink, white, and even aqua in some parts. Shortly after the cloud was dimmed with the darkness of sunset, shots of rosy lightning within the cloud began illuminating the night sky.
I found this time-lapse video on YouTube and couldn’t help but post it. This is, I promise, exactly how it looked. Austin was under a tornado watch the last couple of days, but the rain has yet to come.The following two photos were shot by Ben, who loves a good cloud photo op.
Other YouTube users caught the same cloud on film. Check out the giant cloud from some different angles with these videos below.
