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!

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.
