Long flying day today, with some magnificent weather building. We saw it lurking off the west coast, waiting. Wish I’d had a camera with me–the light touching the hilltops along the Manukau Heads underneath dark, menacing CBs.
On the drive home, out of the corner of my eye, I think I saw the top of a water spout that was shooting down into the Manukau Harbour.
When I got home, I got out of my uniform as quickly as possible, grabbed my camera, and tore back out the door. I missed the lightning (although it felt like it almost got me!) but at least got some of the action.
