One of the things I miss during the winter are thunderstorms. Here is a pic I took last summer just a few minutes before a storm hit the city.

I miss the thunderstorms too, I always find that they're one of Nature's best shows of power and your photo captures that perfectly! Well done :o)

Your photo made me wonder if you get tornadoes up there, as it looked a lot like the threatening skies we saw when we lived on the edge of the U.S. Tornado Alley. I checked, and discovered that you get them as well. Scary stuff!

Thank you for sharing. Your photos are always an inspiration.

Yes, heavy summer clouds bringing some dramatic entertainment! Thunder and lightening, very, very frightening...sorry, couldn't help it.

Oh yes the formation of the dark cloud is telling that a storm is coming out soon. Great shot!

Amazing sky and seascape.

A wonderfully ominous sky, - the most interesting kind. I always loved prairie storms, - they are quite different here in the mountains.

That's quite a storm. We don't get thunderstorms very often, but when we do they can be pretty dramatic. Last summer we had one with a lightening storm that went on for hours. - Margy
