Embedded cumulonimbus clouds gathering over Kenton as a thunderstorm approaches. It rained so heavily in Kenton that the drains were overwhelmed. Water up to the door frame and more than an inch of filthy water in the garage. Suddenly the drains cleared and gallons of filthy water drained out of the driveway and garage and into the garden to join existing flood water. This is the worst garden flood I have ever seen! Virtually the entire lawn was underwater for the first time.

Cumulus building to the North of Barnhill. It soon grows big and overdevelops as showers brew nearby. Towering cumulus. A matrix (2x2) panorama affords a wider view of the overdeveloped cumulus with crepuscular rays.

Moody Hendon sky. A total solar eclipse in Indonesia seen via a live web stream from the Slooh observatory in Palu. The next best thing to being there. It was around the 12:30AM mark at the time for me.

Rapidly clearing fog at 7:30AM. Crepuscular rays above Golders Hill Park. A spectacular sunset over Hendon that lit up cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds. I didn't have my main camera but atleast the iPhone 6S+ was handy even if I struggled to get the lighting right.
