Skywatching on The Tour Bus (Sky Watch #124)

From the moment that the tour bus left our hotel I was skywatching as I always do when I am on a moving vehicle. Here are some snapshots of the Cancun/Yucatan scenery with my skyscape.

Can you tell that it was a H-O-T day? The beautiful cloudscape made up for the heat and humidity, besides the tour bus had air-conditioning.

SKYWATCH is a weekly gathering of sky watchers and sky lovers. Please join us.

  1. Nice shots! We have something in common...skywatching when on a moving vehicle ;)

    A friend of mine has been to Cancun and she enjoyed her holiday.Photo #1 and 6 reminded of my hometown in the Philippines.

  2. I love taking snapshots while inside a moving vehicle. Without the description, I would have thought some shots were taken in the Philippines.

  42. Fascinating skies, Maria! The church is really spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I agree with Dong,Cancun here looks like some small town in the Philippines, esp the houses and the church/chapel.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Did it rain that day? Parang uulan based sa mga clouds.

    ReplyDelete
  45. haha, can somewhere be in the outskirts of the Phils. ^0^
    these are attractive sky shots, i love the pale effect of it and how the clouds look unsaturated.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm echoing what others are saying but these photos do look like they're somewhere in the Philippines.

    You're on your way to Chichen Itza here, right?

    ReplyDelete
  47. A wonderful series which is warming up!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Those photos can be found only in places like that. Here in Barcelona we have 0º, I've forgotten the meaning of hot.

  49. Those hot humid days always make for fabulous skies; you have to take the good with the bad! By the way, the Skagit Valley tulip festival is usually in April. It sort of depends on the weather and when the tulips are expected to bloom. If you go up there, you no doubt will visit Seattle, right? You should also go to Fidalgo Island and then take the ferry over to one of the San Juan Islands for a couple night stay. I'd recommend Orcas Island. If you go to my Travel blog you can find a lot of photos from my various adventures up in that region. Springtime is a great time to go there. You could also head over to Vancouver or Victoria. It's all very close by...just depends on how much time you have. I'll be heading up there in Feb. as I'm on sabbatical this semester and don't have to go into work everyday :)
