Like most people in Cape Town, I’ve received numerous emails today with photographs of the thunderstorm we had yesterday morning. I thought I’d post the collection of them all here – most of the pictures seem to be very widely spread already, and its been difficult tracking down the right people for credit, so most of the pictures below are currently “unclaimed”. Where I have the photographer’s name, its included. If you know who should get credit for any of the others, please mention it in the comments section. (And thanks to Chris for being the first to send me some pics 🙂 )
The storm reminded me a little of what it was like living in Pietermaritzburg (where I grew up) – intense thunderstorms are nearly a daily occurrence during the summer months. In Cape Town its pretty rare to get thunder, and what you do get is generally not much to talk about.
Well, to the pics (that you’ve probably already seen!) – just a quick disclaimer: because of the nature of viral emails, I can make no claim that these pictures are actually from the storm yesterday morning! But, they’re real perdy, so enjoy them anyway!
