The story behind this image

This dramatic cloudscape over the Flintshire suspension bridge at Connah's Quay on Deeside, North Wales had me scrambling to assemble my camera, lens and filter combination in time to catch the towering cumulonimbus before it moved out of the scene.

My wife Liz and I had come down to Connah's Quay to enjoy a walk along the banks of the river Dee down the Wales Coastal Path, but our hike was delayed by a couple of minutes in order to let me get this shot.

A good use of the time, I think!
