On the gray morning that was struck by a storm on August 1, 2023, I was accompanied by my colleague @Safar01 with the intention of photographing the phenomenon of the sunrise light effect from behind the rain clouds. We chose the location of Lam Awe Beach in Aceh Besar.

The scenery at the location was exactly as we expected. The dark clouds slowly continued to gather and form several clusters.

The process happened so quickly, white mist covered the middle of the ocean, and tugboats and barges disappeared from view. A fishing boat was faintly visible behind the white mist of the stormy rain. The fisherman did not seem worried about the ongoing storm phenomenon, and there were no signs of him rushing to the shore.

Strong winds accompanied by heavy rain quickly moved towards the beach, soaking me. I wasn't worried either because I had prepared myself to protect my camera with an umbrella.

Despite the rain, the fishermen still go out to sea by boat. I don't understand the fishermen's actions, but they see no reason to be alarmed by the rainstorm phenomenon. Fishermen are more aware of the actions they choose. The sea is a familiar environment for fishermen.

The rainstorm has subsided.
Strong winds occasionally blow.
The fisherman continues to seek fish.
Fishing boats bob along the current.


I captured the phenomenon of a rainstorm at sunrise in a 30 fps time-lapse of 300 images at 1-second intervals.

Taken with Sony Alpha 7 III camera + Sony FE 50mm F1.8 + Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM + Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens + E-Mount Metabones adapter.
