Cancun: Stormy Skywatch

You have seen the sunrise and the sunset from this same balcony, now see the storm that whipped this area for an hour or so.

The day started with dark clouds. The previous day was sunny but was a tad cool, infact I even turned off the airconditioning because the room was getting way too cold. I've never experienced Cancun this cool before.

The wind got stronger and the rain started coming down hard and because of the strong wind the rain was coming down sideways.

We were getting ready to go out before the downpour. When I saw this, I thought the whole day was a lost cause.

Well, it's just another typical day in a tropical paradise because by noon time, the rain had passed, the sky cleared and by the time we got back from our day out in the city the beach scene showed no sign of the earlier turmoil.

  1. Wonderful pictures of rain and wind.I like your experience about the rain...

  2. It's crazy how weather can change so quickly. Glad for you that it didn't rain the whole day.

  3. A fine series that took us from the storm through to a beautiful beach and glorious sky. Well done.

  4. You captured the storm with wind blown trees so well. There was a big change by the last shot. Beautiful place for a vacation.

  5. I probably would have rethought my plans for the day as well. Nice set of images.

  8. Greetings and Salutations from Illinois! Wow, Cancun can really experience the wind. Chicago is the windy city sometimes we get winds going 50 to 60 miles per hour. I'm not sure but those Palm trees swaying like that the winds hitting Cancun might be a lot stronger than ours. But then comes the calm....lovely photos even if threatening for a time. You are safe and sound. Thank God.
