Beauty after the Storm. Manila, Philippines

I normally don’t get scared of thunderstorms but today’s was an exception. The lightning struck our neighborhood and it was so close to my window that it scared the shit out of me and my dog. A little later, when it finally stopped raining, my peripheral vision caught this unusual color out my window while working on my laptop. I got up, opened the blinds and saw this magnificent red-colored skies. I just had to take pics and record a video! I realise now that if I hadn’t paused from work, I wouldn’t have seen this rare display of beauty. I’m so glad i followed my instinct to check out the window.

I found a quote that best desribes this, from the famous Rabindranath Tagore:

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
