Evening all, today in Norfolk its been a bit on the stormy side so I threw caution to the wind and braved the weather for some photos of a very very angry sky.

I pitched up an almost immediately got a column of light which lit up my foreground perfectly against the background. I spent about 2 hours around this area watching two storms come from different sides and meet together which was a joy to watch.

Sadly the title image is a bit of a phony i must admit, the lightning is not genuine, its something I added afterwards, but hopefully you didn't notice. The rest of the image hasn't been messed about with too much though, just minor levels adjustments, saturation and a vignette.

Well hopefully if all goes well there will be a second version without the fake lightning, for the purists.

Thank you for looking at my photo, I hope you enjoy it and as always all comments and critique are much appreciated.

Cheers,
Matt
