Certainly a vivid contrast of colour here. Very turbulent, to say least!
What a gorgeous shot and just at the right time for the lightning!! Mars is now receding away from Earth, darn it. Thanks for sharing ten fold.

Great shot, Paul!
A beautiful, dramatic shot of the vast, starry heavens above us on planet Earth and lightning from a distant storm to add to the drama. Nice shot of Mars and the milky as well. I think I have been seeing Jupiter as a really large, distinctive, bright star in the early spring, western sky on our cold, clear nights over Canberra, Australia where I live.

Thank you Joan and Rebecca.
Helen, you photo has it all: clouds, rain, lightening, road to the clouds, intense colors! I love it.
I warmly, and much so, go fully along with Ginnie’s comment.
A marvellous photo by any standard! Well done, Helen, and thanks muchly for sharing this spectacle with us. You must be mighty pleased with your photographic effort. I know I would be.
I hope that your photo would gain consideration for inclusion in the CAS 2019 calendar. Here’s hoping just that!
Very dramatic photo, Helen. Well done! Wouldn’t like to be out there in the middle of nowhere and get caught out in that storm without my raincoat or umbrella. The lightning looks like a pole you could slide down from the upper level to the ground and the sun is dramatically shining on the rain pouring down from the storm clouds, creating the rainbow and watering the foreground grass. The dense storm clouds look dark, as the angle of the sun cannot penetrate them. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Beautiful and enthralling, Lauren. What a sight!
A veritable hallmark and masterpiece of your photographic handiwork, Paul, as ever.
You have paid masterful homage and tribute to the powerful tumult in the heavens above.
I like the employment of monochrome and the careful use of lighting which lends contrast to the glowering and menacing clouds above set against the starkly brightly lit rocks in the foreground.
I totally agree with Laurence Green’s comment above. Well done Paul on your dramatic, monochrome black and white storm picture. The rain is about to pour down out of the storm clouds and the sun creates such a stunning contrast in the foreground in order to create a master-piece. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Another great shot and a tribute to nature and her stormy skies.

Very dramatic picture, Charles. Wow! The stormy cumulonimbus clouds in the background look like they are rising into the air like smoke from an explosive, volcanic eruption or an extra huge cauliflower. Looks like there is going to be a change in the hot weather that afternoon quite soon. I was there a couple of years ago with my mother on a coach trip at a similar time of year in the same place. Very beautiful. I also went to Slovenia(Ljubljana), Prague, Vienna, Graz, Zagreb, the lakes in the Croatian Highlands and Split. The European Alps were beautiful. I took a picture of a funnel cloud on the lake border between Croatia and Bosnia, when we stopped for a lunch café break. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Great shot son wish we where there with you both …….
Given your previous low rainbow image (https://cloudappreciationsociety.org/gallery/photo/photo-n-3135-2) you are proving to be an expert low-bow spotter!
