Cloud Sea Over Mountain by Kyaw Kyaw Winn
This magical photo captures a sea of clouds during the monsoon season in Myanmar. Photographer Kyaw Kyaw Winn started trekking early, to reach his vantage point before sunrise and get this shot:
“I love to capture the wonder of nature and beauty of scenery.”
“Cloud seas” like these can form when humid air is forced upwards by the topography of the landscape, leading to water vapour condensing into the water droplets of the cloud. The cloud is contained by the rim of the mountains, although if you look closely you can see some of the cloud spilling over the ridge. Viewed from above, it’s easy to see why a cloud sea is an apt name.
