The rainy season is upon us in Bolivia, this means occasional torrential rains and some of the most hair-raising thunderstorms I’ve ever witnessed. One night, a clap of thunder directly over the house knocked out all the lights and literally rattled the windows while streaks of lightening lit up the night sky like it was day.
The photo sequence below is from a recent afternoon around 4pm. The sky darkened to a point that it could have been night and then the heavens opened with rain, hail, thunder and lightening. The mix of stormy skies, lightening and deafening thunder was truly amazing – I’m just glad I wasn’t anywhere near the lightening strikes.
