    A menacing looking storm approaches. The different cloud shapes and texture highlight the amazing air currents that take place within a large summer storm. As a pilot I’ve experienced first hand how these fierce airflows can throw a large airliner about.  Although on this occassion it was my lens that I pointed directly into the battle from the safety of my home’s deck, rather than a flight deck!
