As soon as I took these photos the thunderstorm started! The lightnings were huuuuuge! I think this was the first time in my life I could actually see them clearly, sharply, almost slow-motion-like instead of just a bright, vague flash everywhere, and they had a purple glow, like on photos. The sky itself looked bluish-green. When the storm was over, the sun set and everything looked yellow! There was such a strong wind I worried about our plants, but it seems everyone is okay. Phew!
