We have had some spectacular weather here, so I thought the new thread could be about some of your weather.

A bit of an older picture of mine, but lightning over the city of Florence in Arizona.

This is my first photo post so wish me luck and let me know if I've done something wrong! This picture was taken in July 2008 at the Twelve Apostles in Victoria as the clouds gathered...

Wow, what beautiful photos. Gees63, you have a great eye. Most people wouldn't think to take that picture, but there is something intriguing about it.

Wow, pyonir's and flopsy's pictures are very lovely!

I'm just back from a trip to Athens and Rome; there was a great thunderstorm in Athens, but unfortunately I didn't get any pictures as I was too busy trying to keep out of the rain! Perhaps I've got a good picture of the sunny weather lurking, but I've got about 1200 photos from the holiday to look through, so it might be some time... when does this two-week theme end?! Ah, not for a while - I have a chance. smile

Great pictures everybody!

More fog, as seen from the back seat from which I was trying to navigate. (This is a couple of winters ago.)

Alex, or anyone, you can always request an extra week or more for a theme. It is often so popular that it needs more time. Let me know.

Extension of weather theme.
Your pictures have been wonderful and I thought another week might bring out some more gasps of amazement on my part, so bring em on!

It was difficult to choose a picture, I have to admit! I went with this one - it was taken in the Ancient Agora of Athens.

As Alexx mentioned up a bit, she and I have just returned from three weeks in Athens and Rome - for the most part, the weather was so hot, it looked nice but felt quite unbearable at times, so we were relieved in a way when a thunderstorm came along in Athens to remove the humidity! Here's the Acropolis under that looming storm! We were standing at the Temple of Olympian Zeus at the time but had to leave in the downpour!
