Yesterday afternoon I was entertained by the most spectacular electric storm, from my balcony. Most of it was too far away to actually see the strikes as the whole area was shrouded in thick cloud, but there were a lot of cloud-to-cloud flashes and curiously little rain. I managed to snap this shot with my cheapo digital camera.
Also, as the storm progressed it became sunset, so the lightning flashes were curiously offset by the surrounding buildings being painted in the orange glow of dusk. The effect was quite odd as the lightning flashes and bolts were almost non-stop for about an hour.
I am rather glad the storm passed by a good distance from my neighbourhood.
