Forces of Nature (WPC)

With my frequent travels, I am often in the sky, taking photos out the window but these photos showing the power of storms were all taken with my iPhone, feet planted firmly on the ground. Some of these I’ve posted before. 

 Awesome storm clouds in Lorne, Victoria. 
Massive storm cloud brewing above my back garden in Brisbane, Australia.
Storm building outside our election polling booths (before I voted) in Brisbane, Australia. 
Storm clouds outside election booth (after I voted) in Brisbane, Australia. 
These photos are submitted in response to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature.

    Great shots Desleyjane!! I love clouds too and these are a fantastic collection, full of broiling bubbling rain I’d say!! I had so many sky and cloud shots to choose from for my post this week, that I decided to go with something a bit different.

    That last photo is so scary. Were those the clouds that brought all that devastating flash flooding? I also have a surprise for you DJ, I would like to nominate you for the “5 photos 5 days challenge that is doing the rounds. There’s no obligation, have fun if you want to join in!

    The challenge is to just “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
