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.

Highway to Hell?
Talk about energy! This mighty cloud has it packed in big time!
Love this one!
Lauren, you have done full justice to my absolute favourite cloud – the undisputed cloud “King”! The “King” depicted here is akin to my favourite instrument, the mighty organ, the king of all instruments.
A very nice shot, Lynn.
It reminds me much of the famous (infamous?!?) “Crop Circles” that several years ago were so apparent in county Wiltshire.
PS. Glad to see you were not abducted and still here with us to share this photo with us, thanks be!
A glimpse of heaven and another world. Love this shot much!
Good shot, Paul!
Amazing – well caught!
A very good shot of lightning in what looks like a small localised storm system.
Thank you Adolfo, Maxine and Michael.
I like this simple picture
This is so typical of our “famous” summer here in the UK! You have my sympathies! That said, we have had some really hot and humid days here with the mercury barrelling upwards in the thermometer. We have had some huge storms brought about by the high temperatures and rain clouds moving in – recipe for storms.
