The storms cross St Austell Bay and approach the lower reaches of the River Fowey

Sadly the intensity of the lightning strikes within the storm cells seemed to peter out as they reached the Cornwall coast not increase as predicted with no forks of lightning noted in the nearly three hours of watching. Especially a shame as the track of them was perfect for this location, one which had been on the radar for a good while awaiting a suitable opportunity

I have also uploaded a colour version. I would be interested to know which is preferred

As always, many thanks to those who have taken the time to look, vote and comment on on my recent uploads.
And a very big thank you to those who have given UA's on my work
Very very much appreciated

I like both versions! In Version 1, the three horizontal bands of colour (orange-yellow, green and grey) are particularly striking. In the lead, black and white picture, the textures and shapes catch my eye i.e. the fall streak, patchwork of fields and the cylindrical bales of hay. If I may make a suggestion, a tighter crop from the bottom which shrinks the empty foreground would give more emphasis to the those distinctive shapes, especially the threatening sky.
