Five minutes before this we had been dining outdoors; eating Lamb chops and Taboulé, and listening to the sweet sound of distant thunder.
No sooner had we gone indoors than the familiar rattling sound of hail was suddenly everywhere. I managed to film a tiny bit before being hit on my bare foot by a big-bugger (expletive inaudible).
And this was the resulting sky just five minutes afterwards (below).
Serious stuff, but not enough rain to bring up mushrooms.
Oh, it was audible, alright, and justified. Here on the other side of the world we had a hailstorm recently, too, though not as dramatic as yours.ReplyDelete
What an amazing sky, that is. Worth the pain, I reckon.
Yes, the sky was amazing; almost like a distant forest fire.Delete
Crikey, I agree with Ninaschen it's an amazing sky xReplyDelete
We had a hailstorm once that was so bad we had several broken windows. And worse, it destroyed my garden for that year. I don't like hailstorms at all!
Good heavens where did that lot come from - and you don't swear in French either. Wonderful sky after though.ReplyDelete
But enough rain to produce that incredible sky.ReplyDelete
Think yourself fortunate that you don't live in a shack with a corrugated iron roof.ReplyDelete
It was noisy enough with tiles!Delete
That'll leave a mark lol.ReplyDelete
OUCH ….. BUGGER !!!!! Very mild I thought !!ReplyDelete
A beautiful sky Cro ….. I can see Zeus or one of the ' Gods ' in the clouds on the right hand side….. eyes, nose, mouth and beard !!! XXXX
I've watched the video since, and can now hear myself swearing.... It hurt.Delete
Interesting to hear your voice. I was just expecting a few boring hailstones.ReplyDelete
There's probably a way to cut out voices, but I ain't found it yet.Delete
Ouch! But what a gorgeous picture!!!ReplyDelete
