130 photos taken this evening. Have attached the ones I consider decent enough to share. Apologies for some of the scratches and marks on the pictures; my camera body needs a damn good clean.  Th

Hi guys, First post here. Hope you enjoy. Here's the view in Brighton looking south east a moment ago. No processing/filtering on this image either.

Wow. Storms from 3 different directions and a line passing right over with thunder that made the ground vibrate. Now reinvigorating again, and another cell to my east with constant strobing - looks very active.

Love how it all faded away to my south only to all kick off about 40 miles North again.....frustrating this storm malarkey.

Are we the only people who missed out completely in the south?

The ingredients are all there and literally storms everywhere else. It just isn’t making sense.

Still raining. Really nothing to write home about from what I’ve seen and I’ve been driving about all over the place.
