The story behind this image

The spring weather here in North Wales can change every half hour, with sunshine, clouds, rain, wind and calm followng each other in rapid sucession.

Which is great for me, with my interest in photographing 'on the edge', in terms of light, seasons, tides and, of course, weather.

My wife Liz and I were enjoying one of our local 'coronavirus lockdown' walks in the spring of 2020, nipping out in-between showers to get some fresh air and exercise, when I spotted a magnificent cumulonimbus cloud forming overhead.

So it was out with the camera to quickly catch the developing weather beofre heading rapidly back home before getting soaked!
