Highveld thunderstorm

We had a great time Christmas weekend with my wife’s family on the farm in Potchefstroom. Summer afternoons are amazing in this area of the country as we are often treated to a thunderstorm which clears just in time for a stunning sunset. This weekend was no exception!

This photo of the storm building up was taken moments before the sun disappeared behind the clouds.

A few hours later the sun reappeared for a final goodbye. I took the chance to capture this silhouette of my beautiful wife with the rain falling on the horizon.
