Best Sunset Ever, on the Mekong in Laos

This might be the best sunset I’ve ever seen. Sunset photos can be a bit boring in a way –– it’s just too easy to make them look good. However this one was so interesting, it’s worth posting. It was also a great moment. Al Hájek and I were chilling out in the Australian Embassy’s pool on the Mekong in Laos (as one does). We were hoping to get a sunset, but a thunderstorm came rolling in just as the sun was starting to set. With all the dark clouds and lightning in the sky, I figured it was hopeless. But then all of a sudden, these two sunbeams burst through the clouds and lit up the sky. It was quite incredible!  (Thanks to Rachel and John for making it happen!)
