Storm Cell


A few weeks go Sydney had an amazing storm that happened mid afternoon and battered much of the city with torrential rain and large hail stones. It approached from the south and went past my place. I have a rooftop apartment and managed to snap these photos just before the rain hit and turned day into darkness.















 The storm charged through then it was sunny again. That's Australia - land of extremes. Now I'm waiting for our little bit of winter..

Have a good week,
Val.

p.s. I am broadening my horizons and linking to Sky Watch Friday for the first time.
Go and see some skies from around the world!

  2. Fantastic photo, Val. It was an awful storm indeed, judging by the media reports. Glad I"m not there at the moment!

  3. That was a whole in one :-) One seldom sees clouds like that. May you enjoy your winter ;-)

    1. Not much chance of that - they have just announced a official 'el nino' - hot dry spell due to increasingly warm ocean currents - for Sydney. At least it is cold enough to sleep at night!
