The Gathering Storm

As I write this, yet another tropical storm is brewing here in Panama. The sky is darkening although it is still daytime and there is an eerie yellowish hue to the clouds. Thunderstorms are an extremely common occurence here – we have frequently experienced storms which consist of lightning flashes every few seconds but no thunder or rain. There are also plenty of the more traditional kind with thunder, lightning and torrential rain. It´s never boring here, that´s for sure!

I should mention as a P.S. that this photo was taken during the build-up to another storm last weekend – that is why the sky does not appear yellowish!

  1. A great photo shot of that storm-it almost looks real ! I remember the storms very well-there were a few during the three years of living there.
