Just had a cracker of a storm in Redditch plenty of CG & IC illuminating the stunning looking sky, managed to capture a few strikes before the rain fell.



Thanks

Excellent shot Anton - love the sky colours in that.

Hopefully Mother Nature will send a thunderstorm or two in my direction this weekend.

Excellent image Anton!  Saw the same storm too.  Was down at my local stood outside watching approach till the 50 pence rain started falling and I retreated inside...  Got stranded then - lightning was cracking all around, so on health and safety grounds decided the best thing to do was to stay in the pub Wink  Terrible  Tongue

Just wish I had camera and tripod with me as would have been some brilliant pics!  Hope for somemore today! Smiley
