Summer storms on the Isle of Wight
The summer up until now has been pretty good, the odd shower but mostly hot and sunny. The added bonus for when it’s hot and sunny is that it often spawns some nice thunderstorms, and recently we’ve had a few small ones roll in off the channel.
I have an interest in the weather, and a bit of a thing for clouds, so I try and get out to have a look and see what’s happening up above whenever the weather starts to get interesting. Thick black clouds coupled with low, golden sun on a warm summers evening is pretty nice. I was planning my new photography project and was driving along the ‘back o’ the Wight’ last week, when another little storm turned the sky black (accompanied by some rather large rain), and some gorgeous light & cloud combinations appeared.
