Thunder Storm Unleashed

While enjoying a peaceful afternoon on a sunny Summer day around my home earlier this afternoon, a thunder storm was unleashed that came cracking and flashing through the Okanagan area, what amazed me was how loud the rumbling thunder was as it shook my house and the the ground beneath my feet, along with that came darkened skies and a down pour of rain interspersed with flashes of lightening. It was all over in a about half and hour, Mother Nature has some awesome powers as the skies are some of the most spectacular shows that that one can witness with out having to buy a ticket. This image of stormy clouds was taken a number of years ago near Vernon, B.C. in April of 1990 with my Tachihara 4 x 5 view camera and a 300mm lens.
