Default Birth of a thunderstorm.

Walking on a fishing pier, looking toward the east just before sunset, the classic cloud pattern rising high in the atmosphere. At this point the sun behind or back had not yet gone below the horizon, so the clouds are well illuminated. E-3 and Zuiko 12-60mm










Here the sun had actually set below the horizon behind our backs, but the thunderhead was so high, it was still catching the rays of the sun.



A lucky shot - just as I tripped the shutter, it caught the defused lightning that flashed within the cloud, creating the bright areas that are very visible.

Nice series Steven. And an interesting phenomenon when the Sun still lights the top of the thunderhead.
