I’ve just spent the last hour or so outside watching more huge and awesome thunderstorms which have hit London this evening! We down South really have been treated by the heavens to a wonderful frequency of awesome and magnificent storms this summer; hurrah!
I am an absolute storm geek and so these past few weeks have been marvellous for me. I’ve not seen this concentrated a level of storm activity before!
The entire night sky was lit up and we had a great clear view from the door to our apartment. Unfortunately my camera phone let me down an awful lot, however I didn’t want to start shining it’s light into people’s windows etc heh!
Below are a few vimeo clips that I took of the storm; clip number 3 is best for cloud to ground strokes. There are restrikes throughout all of the clips (restrikes are lightning strokes from the same strike, seperated by a few milliseconds, which visibly cause the ‘strobe’ effect)
