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.

Good seen, Marie.
Would this be an example of a Helm cloud of the type seen in the Lake District and Yorkshire, for example, Ribbleshead railway viaduct?
A soothingly quiet muted vista with the clouds complimenting and setting off the overall majestic scenery.
Most pleasing! Thanks much, Reddi, for this shot. It brought back fond memories of my visits to this wonderful part of the world.
Excellent shot, Mike.
This photo is another of your special hallmark.
Yes thanks Laurence you got it in one. I just love the drama of lightning photography and have taught myself how to reliably do it. My preference is single lightning strike rather than multiple.
A calming, restful and soothing photo, Linda. It finds my pleasure easily.
You may be interested in the following inasmuch that 2018 sees a remarkable event – two, yes, two Blue Moons. They are set to occur 31 January and 31 March.
Here is what I posted onto the CAS Forum page back on 24 October:-
“2018 sees two Blue Moons occurring – 31 January and 31 March. The last time two such Moons occurred was in 1999.
