Are you back now in the UK? I recall many of your glorious shots taken on the other side of the Equator. That said, you have not lost your touch in capturing this dramatic and atmospheric scene.
I hope the CAS might consider this photo for its 2019 calendar. Fingers crossed for you!
Thanks for sharing this virtuous shot! Your photography is marvellous and a delight to see.
Thanks Laurence. Yes I have been back from working overseas (and now retired again) for three years now. But I have during my overseas trips amassed a considerable library of dramatic photos from the tropics. This one is obviously not one from the tropics but I understand now what ingredients are required for getting those shots you refer to. One is luck two is actually living in a location that will produce good material and three I suppose is knowing what to do once you recognise a mix when something dramatic could happen. This one was mostly luck being there on holiday with my family. I ignored my wife by bringing the camera gear for the day at the beach. Photos in the gloaming always produce great atmospheric effects.
Yet again Mike a superb Image it’s a good job you did not leave your camera at home
Thanks, Mike, and, may I say, welcome back to the UK! I bet you find the weather here a wee bit different!
I think very highly of your photography, likewise, a CAS member, Paul Martini, hailing as he does from Bluff, Utah, USA. He, like you, packs in a grand and powerful photo upon the CAS Gallery capturing the elements and dramatic cloudscapes.
With all the photos you have amassed I reckon you could get a great book produced featuring your photos.
Thanks again and for reverting to me. It is appreciated and it is really nice when photo authors reply to comments on the CAS gallery.
Superb Image Jurene right place -right time
Being up in the air gives you a real sense of the size and scale of the landscape below that you wouldn’t see on the ground. The patchwork fields, forested areas, towns and beautiful, big blue lake are all there for all to see.

A wonderful shot!
I have never seen anything like this. The strong beams of light arching upwards are akin to WW2 searchlights. You have captured a really moody sky and complimented by the rainbow as contrast.
Comment from Mike..
“Taken from the beach in front of my apartment when I was there. Not your typical view of the Bahamas .No blue sky no aquamarine sea and no white sand but a view that I saw regularly and loved as I just cannot get enough of skies filled with drama. I think it is enhanced by the angle and position of the sun which is filtered out by cloud and the sun lighting up the lower level of clouds”
I am curious about the location of your photo!
I was born, bred in Clapham, south London and lived and worked there for some 44 years before moving, reluctantly, to the Bristol area c, 1995. I miss Clapham and my friends very much! To me, real home!
Tell me, please, what is the road from where you took the photo? Would it be Edgley Road, running from Clapham High Street down to Larkhall Rise? The houses look like Elmhurst Mansions.
Please, get back to me and satisfy my curiousness.
