The remains of an ironbark eucalyptus hit by lightning

The remains of an
ironbark eucalyptus
hit by lightning

We get sent a lot of pictures of fierce clouds but Bruce Sharp (member 3979) has emailed us an impressive shot of the aftermath of a storm in Australia.

This is what was left of an ironbark eucalyptus, one of the hardest of timbers, after it was hit by lightning. Fence post-sized chunks were hurled up to 50 yards and the stump was lifted out of the ground.

The picture was taken by Col Coulson near Kingaroy in central Queensland.
