Lightning strike over Marseille

Uploaded by: Marta4

Friday October 4, 2013

Marseille, France

Caption: There was a lot of lightning in last night's storm! The sky was pitch black, and as you can see, this lightning lit up the sky as though it were dusk! I could only see that there were different layers of clouds moving in the sky when the lightning struck.

About Marta4


It's great to discover the images from different parts of the world on this site. It doesn't have to be a "prize winner" just an interesting weather phenomenon, an unusual old building, or an intriguing outdoor scene. I've been interested in meteorology since I was a kid. I also like painting and I research former industrial sites that are now devoted to contemporary creation. I try to show the world from my perspective. I enjoy rating the pictures, please rate mine. I appreciate all comments even if I don't always get around to answering. Create your own visitor map!
