Out of my studio window I can see...

Recently I've spent a lot of time gazing out of my office / studio window. Not good for work or the silk paper cutting, but it allows me to gaze at the heavens and the wonders they bring. I'm also lucky enough to look out at the tallest building in the world, the Taipei 101. It's so tall that the top of the building has its own weather which streams in from the hills behind it.

This first picture was taken in June from my studio. Every afternoon there was a thunderstorm. This one seemed to be forming right over the 101, the clouds churning and darkening until they burst. Awesome stuff.Then just last week a rainbow appeared and seemed to move closer and closer towards our apartment building until it was about 500 metres away. It was the closest I'd ever been to the end of a rainbow. It too was awesome!
