There was a very noisy and stormy evening here a few days ago. I was fascinated by the changing sky and took several photos from various positions, which I thought you might enjoy. I have to say that, at the end of this celestial display, despite watching the rain falling not too far away, we did not receive one single drop!! The clouds and thunder circled all around us for a while, then dispersed for about three quarters of an hour, only to return with even more visual and sound effects. I have tried to place the photos in the order that I took them.
Early on, with the rain very visible at the back on the right
My neighbour's sheep in the foreground, getting on with what sheep do!
The sun just starting to set
This looked like flames in the sky to me
Suddenly the sky started to clear
As the sun caught the edges of the cloud
But then it returned with a vengeance
