Very nice Joe! I believe young people would call this awesome; if so, for once I would agree! Cheers, Harry
Just one word—whaw
Good shot, Roberto!
Beautiful front and, of course, beautiful composition, John.
Great gift to all of us, astraphilian people! Thanks!
Your photo, John, certainly packs a big punch in no small way! Dramatic and powerful. It is positively heaving with mood and brooding. Your careful composition accentuates the foreboding clouds upon the horizon. Tumult in the skies!
Cheers and thanks for this.
A very pleasing and interesting shot, Karen. Lots of mood here and nice lighting.
A grand shot, Mike.
The overall colouring of the photo is marvellous, especially the turquoise sea.
What a vista!
Wow, pretty scary!
To all those who have shown appreciation of my photography of lightning – thanks it is appreciated. I first tried my hand at photographing lightning in West Australia in 1973 with mixed success. Now I use a lightning trigger by name which does the triggering bit but not the camera set up. My favourite subject is weather related with lightning as the prime target but it isn’t that easy. You must be where there is lightning activity and the tropics give obviously the best opportunity. Then there is following the track of the storm unless it is overhead when the rain is prohibitive. There appears to be in a large storm three main phases – my observations. The rain and sheet lightning, after the rain with dangerous ground strikes as the storm moves away followed by lightning that appears to travel up – anvil crawlers. But it can be hit and miss. One day I may have my book ‘Tropical Skies and Storms’ printed if I can find a printer to do it.
This shot of yours, Jeanette, finds my liking very much. It is quietly lovely. Nice muted colours, good composition and I like the way the foreground is highlighted by low level light offsetting the sombre stormy clouds above.
Thanks for the sharing.
Well said, Laurence. Nature is such an exquisite artist. We’re lucky, Jeanette, that you collaborated with her in this painting for us.
Yes indeed. Thank you very much.
Thanks for the sharing of this wonderful shot. Marvellous capture of a really good moody, brooding and atmospheric scene. One could almost feel the weight of the clouds ready descend a huge rainfall.
