    Nice composition,,I love the sunlight peering through the darkness of the storm clouds

  • Thanks Dlouise. The bright bit is actually sunlight reflected from the sunset (the sunset is off to the right of frame, over my right shoulder). I took it because the luminosity intrigues me- it does indeed look like the cloud is glowing by itself- presumeably the water droplets are catching the sunlight ?, more so in reality than even in this picture. I say this because I hope others will go outside after storms and see it for themselves rather than stay inside watching telly.

    Beautifully caught, i rarley photograph clouds, but love to look at them change and swirl!

  • We get very spectacular ones here is Spring. The weather comes in off the Great Southern Ocean, meeting with the hot arid air coming down from Central Australia. More spectacle to come! Buvelot& painted our sunsets for the first time in the early 1800’s and his English patrons thought the scenes were imaginary colours.
