Escarpment Storm

Drakensberg Escarpment, South Africa

A massive storm cell moves in from the west, bringing dramatic conditions as the setting sun fades away for the day. Lightning strikes the escarpment in the distance under beautifully illuminated rain and storm clouds. Anyone who has been to the Drakensberg will understand the echoing effect the mountains have on thunder, it's an amazing natural event to experience whilst on foot in the mountains. The lightning in the image is real, no photoshop tricks were used.
