Saw this coming home from shopping, raced inside, grabbed my camera and hurried to the park behind our house. Shame I didn’t have time to get a shot away from the houses. :(

    geez that looks scary. wow.

  • hanks, jaffa, great to hear from you. :)
    I couldn’t do the light or mood justice. It was so eerie and scary. We ended up with a heap of rain, but nowhere near what it looked like. It basically went around us, as they often do, here.

    Wow….bet you were a bit scared of it too! Great capture!

  • Thanks Barb, it was really scary…but it was all a ‘front’, lol. Somewhere else got the worst of it. It ended up going past us.

    Amazing Sky JJ….Fantastic shot and I like the comp with the houses in it…

  • Thanks John, it was so hard to get the eeriness of it all. I expected such a bad storm and it just went past us. I thought you guys might have got a bit more of it than us. My environmental scientist son, was very impressed with the pic. lol
