Tropics on a rainy day

When we think of tropical islands, we usually think of warm sunny days and scenes like the one below:

The reality however is that it’s not ALWAYS like that. Sometimes the sky goes grey and the heavens open. The sea loses its beautiful bright blue colour too. The photo below is taken from roughly the same place as the one above.

Coconut palms and frangipani – a common perception of the tropics, but usually with a bright blue sky in the background too. Rainy day photos don’t make for quite as attractive tourism campaigns, but they are a reality, and it’s a nice relief from the hot sun, plus it fills up the tanks with drinking water.
