Big storms are a common occurrence here in the summer. Sunny, hot days turn overcast by late afternoon, with massive thunder and lightning close behind. The other day I experienced my first Joburg storm, with an added bonus - hail!
These guys may not have been the biggest hailstones ever, but they still made a racket!
On another note, I wanted to say thanks to everyone for the kind comments. I'm a bit slow to work out the intricacies of blogging, but I look forward to checking out all the other daily photo blogs in time, and really appreciate your thoughts in the meantime!
