Storm at Lake Nakuru

A large thunder storm heads down the rift valley in Kenya, and looms over Lake Nakuru; the late 1970s.

Large storms like this are common in and around the rift valley.  This is convectional rainfall – the sun rises and starts to suck the ground’s moisture up into the sky.   As a result, the mornings are beautifully clear but, as the moisture rises, clouds start to form and, usually in the afternoons, large storms like this one drop the water back onto the land again – after which the sun often reappears for a fine end to the day.

The birds in the water in the foreground are flamingos, and the line of flying birds further out comprise three pelicans on the left, followed by yet more flamingos.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  1. Love the reflections with both lines of birds. Great stuff, bud.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
