I couldn’t resist taking photos of a thunderstorm passing over Maungarei (Mt Wellington) this afternoon. I love the swirly, looming palette of blue and blue-grey that envelops the landscape. A perfect backdrop for the rich, warm tones of autumn leaves, a rainbow and the setting sun.
I tried very hard to catch a lightning strike to no avail. That will be a challenge for another day.
The storm heads south and the sun sets leaving just a tinge of orange.
