2013-05-20 – Hong Kong Thunderstorm
Aspect Ratio: 3:1
Hong Kong Thunderstorm is captured over East Hong Kong Island. When the clouds break the skies clear and only lightning remains in some cases. Every thunderstorm is unique and one never knows how it will behave.
Chasing storms and trying to get the best of nature at its most extreme might seem a bit strange when one first thinks about Hong Kong. In Spring and Summer season we get an abundance of perfect conditions for storms. We have the type that are local and then regional ones. The local map on the Hong Kong Observatory weather web-site and mobile app will look like a dart board hundreds of people are playing on at the same times. Storms can last all night long and it’s not unusual for the thunderstorm warning to stay up for days on end. Now the next challenge is keeping the camera lens and body dry while trying to work out where the best strikes will be, that in itself can be like a dog chasing its tail. The real challenges moving forward are always to get better framing and more strike captures regardless of the conditions, day or night. One does not always need to see lightning or hear thunder to get a sense of the power of a storm.
