SkyWatch - A walloping storm


Last Saturday at the Angaston Farmers' Market
a great storm arose
do enlarge for a fuller effect

the light changed


and multi-coloured clouds with pink and green in them 
gathered in the space of a few minutes


they darkened and started turning into horizontal ropes


then a mixture of rain and hail bucketed down


as lightning flashed vertically and 
horizontally at the same time


driving was a bit hair-raising and at a snail's pace
but we got home safely none the less.

  7. And I thought my own photo showed an impressive sky! Yours are truly scary. I only once saw such a sky in Australia and it was like a giant flying saucer moving over us. Thanks for telling the whole story in images, it was worth it. I'm glad you were safe !

  17. Very scary looking stormy driving conditions, but gosh even your stormy days are beautiful. Not like gray winter rains in Oregon. Just gray, no interest.
