Coming home from work I spotted the start of an electrical storm brewing so I rushed up to the apartment and grabbed the camera as quickly as I possibly could.

Immediately running back down to the wharf to the most intense electrical storm I have ever seen! It built up strongly over about 3 hours and passed accross the harbour perfectly.

What an incredible sight!

Today was one very lucky day!
