Lightning on Portland
The above pictures were taken some years ago from Portland.
Storm Pictures 3rd July 2001

The pictures on this page were taken on the night of 3rd of July 2001 between midnight and 0400hrs. We started watching the storm approach from the south towards Portland Bill but soon decided to move when lightning struck the car park. I started photographing it from Cheyne Weares and got a few shots of lightning behind the lighthouse. It soon became dangerous to be there so we moved again to the view point at Portland Heights, which is where most of the shots are taken from.
