Last night we had a huge thunderstorm with hail, and violent rain. There were flashes of lightning in the sky and the thunder was quakingly loud. We're not used to this kind of weather on the west coast, so it was quite a treat. There was this amazingly colour saturated sky: bright oranges and fierce reds that filled the night. These are really poor pictures, but you can see some of the colours especially at 9 o'clock at night!
