I know you have previously taken, and kindly, displayed remarkable lightning images on the CAS’s Gallery.
Do you know about the staggering and marvellous place for lightning in Catatumbo, Venezeula? I am sure you have.
This is surely the lightning capital of our planet.
Have a peek at this lot:-
It is amazing how the sky dramatically turns purple or lilac after the electrically-charged lightning has finished lighting up the sky during a dramatic thunderstorm and the rain is pouring down over Bluff, Utah, USA. Great shot! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Thank you Laurence and Rebecca.

Great shot, Paul! Another dramatic storm system over Bluff, Utah, USA at dusk! Amazing how you can see the stars in the sky through a gap in the storm clouds! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Crickey, Paul! Full moonlight?!? I guess this is a long exposure but, to me, it is like evening or early morning day light.
Nice shot indeed.
A lovely photo from you, Modestino, as ever!
Beautifully composed with obvious attention to detail. The photo is all the better for being taken in monochrome.
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
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.

Good shot Paul! Looks like you have been travelling for many miles along the gravel roads in the South Western USA in a search for adventure. Looks really lonely and vast out there. The highlight that day would have been to see that rain storm building up after a long, hot summer’s day in August in dramatic fashion. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Wow, I love these black and white cloudscapes Paul.
Thank you Rebecca and Hans.
A great photo of precipitation falling near the distant hills beyond the town and vast patchwork fields. The sun is still shining however, producing its holy rays and creating a soft yellow tone to the sky, which contrasts with the dark grey rain clouds. The foreground is relatively dark and in shadow.
