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.
Laurence, very true, such work should always be appreciated ,it’s easy for one to sit in front of their PC and whiz around the world,
but a lot of hard work and travailing goes into creating a photograph that will be “out of this world”
Mike Davies I cannot let your comments go without responding. Firstly thanks for the original comment. Secondly I found that over the many years I went to Florida to storm chase, I suppose it’s called, although some two weeks in August were wall to wall stormy weather in the main catching a Bermuda high that suppressed any cloud that wanted to go vertically up was more the norm. Living in a place allows one to see the whole range of weather. I doubt though that the three plus years in The Bahamas were the same at all. But being there for that time meant I caught it all, hurricanes included.
What a rainbow. This must be a total star of the rainbow world. You were smart to bring all camera gear!! If I saw that with no camera, I’d jump in the water.

Quite dramatic! Looks like the full force of the storm is about to reach the downtown area of town in only a short time! Best to stay calm and alert and do not panic as the rain pours down, knowing you are safe, warm and dry inside your car! I would rather head home or head back to work and not be caught up in it at all! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
