Early-summer thunderstorms, Caloundra.

We have experienced a few dramatic early-summer thunderstorms at our new home over the last few weeks. These scenes are from Kings Beach and Happy Valley, at Caloundra – on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. Some show storms building, others in mid-action, and others of the retreat.
