Not a storm as such but more a threathening storm (and we did get it later in the day). This photo was taken at the ancient hill city of Pergamom (nowadays Bergama) in Turkey, the country we travelled last year. I titled it "Not a chimney" as the clouds look like smoke coming out of the ancient piece of brick building in the middle. The acropolis is situated on a high hill overlooking the valleys around it (as you can see) and you need to go up a frighteningly steep and narrow road... with a tour bus!



I don't have any storm photos handy, so yet another one with threathening clouds. These are the Cliffs of Moher in Irish County Clare, where most of our European weather rolls in over Ireland, discharging rain more often than not (we still get enough ourselves though).

Not so glorious Goodwood. At least it wasn't a raceday.

It's monsoon season here in southwestern Colorado. This was taken in the last few days:



Hail from a storm that washed out our driveway and the road. This was taken six hours after the storm was over.

I never saw this phenomenon until I got out west in the open spaces. I'm quite fascinated by it.

THe aftermath of the storm I was waiting for most of yesterday. It finally rained overnight. Would you believe this pic was taken just before 8am? ETA: View of my backyard.

This one was taken yesterday after several spring showers that we had during the course of the day when I walked out to put some rubbish into my bin and thought "beauty ~ I've finally got something to add" (I didn't realise until today that Pam had a double rainbow too though)



This next photo was one, taken several weeks ago (not sure if it was hubby dearest or me who photographed this scene but it was an opportunity too good to miss when I found it today amongst our photo collections to present here)...

Jube's and Pam's rainbows are my favorite. THough Blondmom's second picture is impressive too.

Hans I love that "smokin" chimney. At least that's what it looked like to me.
I also love the greens in P'ter photo.

I really like both of Pam's pictures. The rainbow picture is beautiful (lovely soft light on the ground) and the hail really impressive. Han's "chimney that isn't a chimney" is a good statement too. Blondmom, there's a fantastic panorama hiding inside your "phenomenon" picture. Try chopping off the dark part at the bottom with the lorry and the really bright bit at the top.
