Thunder above Madeira watersBad weather on Madeira Islands? Thunderstorm?

No, do not worry! These last few days we have had some beautiful weather here on the islands and still more to come. No, this picture (Thunder above Madeira Waters) was taken in November last year. Rob Dekker from the Netherlands has captured the thunder lighting that ‘played tag’ with the Atlantic Ocean.

Such thunderstorms tend to pass the islands by from a safe distance … thanks to an ‘invisible’ barrier that protects the archipelago from these forces of Mother Nature. Still it is a beautiful show that its worth while to watch … and, if your are lucky, intercept it … on a digital chip.
