Incredible shots. There's nothing more beautiful than a dark storm cloud, not even sunsets

Storms like that with microbursts are very common in Brisbane especially during our summer/winter transition periods (September to December) and to a lesser extent (March to May). In fact there was one last night (but with hail) and another tomorrow night. (Edit, - SMS arrived from our BCC Alert (Brisbane City Council) - looks like tonight as well) Lucky I love storms )

We don't have skyscrapers, no even highrises but here is a nice shot of my small town. I hope you like it



Severe thunder activity is very commun here in the summer, the Rotterdam one is nothing compared with what we got over here.

Cheers.
