I am admirer of your lovely entrancing photos and the latest one submitted by you testifies to my continued admiration of your wonderful photographic work.
Thanks so much for sharing this spectacular image with us. Great work, wonderful composition and exposure giving full gravitas and homage to the ever changing cloud kingdom.

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.
Passengers on the plane that can be seen to the right of the apartments as it makes its final approach to Nassau airport, would be having a turbulent descent.
Previous comment – I think you mean left, not right.
Beautiful shot, Mike. Perfection!
Re previous comment Laurence, the apartments are on the left of the image, the plane making its final approach is on the right of them….:+)..
Ian, Photo Editor
I apologise to you and now partaking to eating humble pie. Thanks for the correction. Too much pre-Christmas drinkies are to blame, I think. “Oh dear!”.
Best wishes as ever and thank you so much for all that you do for the CAS and looking after the Photo Gallery in particular.
No problem Laurence…and thanks for your good wishes, very much appreciated as always….IanL..
Mike, as always from you, a marvellous photo.
You ought to produce a book of your photos. Suggested title, “Cloud Worship”.
Mike, the composition and colors in this photo are absolutely beautiful. Love it!
Laurence as ever I am appreciative of your comment(s). I do have a book prepared in Lightroom having been sucked in by the Blurb Template therein. So when I can establish the how I will look at it again. I have been fortunate over the past 10 to 15 years to be able to afford the equipment and placing myself where these photographs are most likely to be successful including over 6 years in the tropics and The Bahamas.
Thanks Ginnie also. I have many more to upload.
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.
Super shot well done
A faultless photo. Magnificent! The full glory of the clouds captured and depicted handsomely.
Thanks, Mike, for this beautiful shot.
Terrific shot, Mike, This is certainly powerful cloud drama!
Pretty mixed sky, Mike.
Yes thanks. This sky was in the pre-hurricane Sandy weather.
But the weather out in the Bahamas and Malaysia where I was before this period was nearly always dramatic especially in the right seasons of the year. In Malaysia this was most times as there is no summer or winter just humidity changes and in The Bahamas from April to October.
superb image well captured
Great composition, Mike.
Great picture to start the day. Congrats, Mike.
Great photo, Mike. It must have been damn impressive to witness this real time!
Grand shot, Mike.
Carping criticism – I find the red light at the far right hand corner at the bottom of your otherwise lovely shot rather distracting from the overall heavenly vista above.
Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately that red light on what is Adventure Island now locally referred to Sandals Island (Sandals now have exclusive rights to it) is part of their private set-up over there. I could have cloned it out. I have numerous day and night-time shots of lightning striking behind the island some locals say because of iron there from shipwrecks. True or not I’m not sure but I do have a significant number striking that region beyond the reef in deeper water.
But I was fortunate to live and work there for 3+ years and views like this could be daily events during certain times of the year. Just had to get the camera out paraphernalia and point it (trying to miss the light).
superb Image well captured
Thanks kindly for taking the time for your appreciated reply.
I hope my comment about the little red light did not cause any hurt or offence – neither was intended. I apologise if this was the inadvertent case.
I have today, if ok with you, employed your marvellous photo as my current screensaver. Thanks be, due to the formatting of my screen etc the little red light does not appear in the overall picture. It makes for a lovely view!
Laurence – I don’t or didn’t take offence in any way with what you said. Equally I do not object to you using my photo as a screen saver. ‘Tongue in cheek’ I would say my aim is to have everyone using my photos as screen savers!
