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.

Fantastic, picture, Beth: composition, clouds and optical effects in the same lot. Great to share it.
As ever from you, Mike, a wondrous shot.
Your photo has done true justice to the marvellous cloud spectacle. Nothing like this in Yate, south Gloucestershire where it is dull, dark and miserable, sorry to report.
Thanks for this viewing.
