The thunderstorm had been building all day and the broody skies were threatening as darkness fell over the city.
The yellow streetlight glow was punctuated by super-bright forks and flashes for at least an hour. The roar of the thunder was all-surrounding and ultimately awful.
I stood outside in the warm rain and clicked, clicked, clicked away with the camera until I finally captured the images you see here.
The power of nature at full force.
Well worth the effort!
