It was well after the monsoon season when I was travelling in Myanmar last year, though I did encounter occasional rains. But the downpour that I witnessed in central Myanmar, at Inle Lake, is something I will remember for a long time to come. I have grown up in a region where it used to rain heavily and all day long during the monsoon months, and yet had never seen this kind of pelting before. The lady in the photograph was about 30 meters away, but was barely visible through the thick raindrops. Unusual as it may seem, the camera struggled to focus, often bringing the focus on thick raindrops somewhere in the air!
