Well done, Paul, for capturing this entrancing image. It must have been somewhat magical to see it for real.
Thanks for sharing this marvel with us.

The dramatic anvil cloud in background, on the other side of the sea off the Costa Rican Coast, other than a dragon also looks a bit like a dinosaur(a diplodocus) appearing out of the clouds, with its neck out-stretched, as it searches carefully with its eyes for any dangerous enemies that might suddenly charge out from behind the bushes and attack it!

The dramatic cloud with the silver lining at sunset in the picture over the Vinales Valley, Cuba looks quite unhappy to me- it has a frown on its face and its mouth open wide in order to shout abuse at its victim, who he dislikes so much and needs to bully for control of his territory!. To me it also looks like the cloud is opening its mouth in surprise and breathing out dragon’s breathe(even though it isn’t that cold there) or smoke(the higher cirrus cloud surrounding it). Don’t know what the cloud is so angry or surprised about. Perhaps the cloud is surprised by its victim’s ability to defend itself against the abuse the other cloud is dishing out.

As ever, from you, a fantastic photo. A supreme capture. Love it much indeed!
I recall some months ago you returned to the UK in Scotland and now it seems you are back in the Bahamas. I thought you retired – some 3 times, I think – but it seems you are back in work again. At least, behind the camera and producing lovely photo work and able to witness marvellous spectacular vistas like the one portrayed in your photo/
It is a pleasure to see your photographic work again. “BIFFO”!
Best wishes and wishing you a very Happy Easter.
Beautiful and dramatic storm picture out to sea over the Bahama Islands, Mike!
Certainly had been at the right place at the right time in order to capture such an amazing shot at night! Didn’t think that such storms happen over the Bahama Islands in the Caribbean in mid-April(spring for them), as I though they occurred much more often in Summer(June/July/August) when the summer temperatures and humidity are definitely at their highest and most uncomfortable. Can’t stand 35 degrees and 90% humidity in summer- a storm in the evening would certainly provide much needed relief!
The lightning appears almost like a dead tree, with it many off-shoot branches or like a set of twisted forks about to haunt and then reach out to its onshore victims! The dark blue/green sea in the foreground looks surprisingly calm!
