Sky, Sun, Sea and Cloud Porn of Sri Lanka

So when someone yells Sri Lanka what do you think of? Assuming you aren’t a political or religious nut I would have to say tropical or paradise. So what does a tropical paradise have in abundance? You guessed it…..

Beautiful skies, seas and the abyss in between, here is a post dedicated solely on the most beautiful scenic and sky pictures we have taken so far on our travels in Sri Lanka, we plan on bringing out a similar post once a month with more of the endless cacophony of beauty that is the teardrop island.

Enjoy đŸ™‚

Love Sherard & Amy

We have been staying in a house next door to Talpe Beach Restaurant on the Matara Road, this is the view from the back garden.

The oncoming cloud front of a brutal storm heading towards the Galle Fort, we did get caught in the storm and were soaked right through to the bone!

A strange plot of land on Matara road that is just rubble and mess, we were driving by and I saw this, needless to say we stopped for a more permanent memory.

Further down the beach from Kikili Beach House as though heading towards Galle you are greeted with rock pools full to the brim with sea life of all sizes including two males whose silhouettes I felt I must document

Our first visit to Unawatuna beach before the season kicked in, we were the oly ones around and this fishing boat was abandoned to our photographic delight.

On our way back from a hard days surfing - or in my case drowning, we couldn't resist pulling in to capture a moment that just topped our day

As we left the beautiful island to travel home for a month before our return we were given this sight to remind us of the beauty we are yet to see.
