Before the Storm....



I sat down at my table, which faces south (this is the Southern hemisphere, so bad weather comes up from Antarctica) to address newsletters to my customers. Not one of my favourite jobs. I had barely started when I saw black clouds rolling in very quickly.

After rushing out to bring in the washing, for it'd been sunnyish before, a big wind sprang up, the temperature dropped by half, and now we have lightning, thunder and rain, after an initial bit of hail.

The town and sea looked so different with this cloud hanging over it, so I had to protograph them.
