Electrical storms continue

With a wet and stormy Summer behind us, Violent electrical storms continue in our area.
Mostly isolated pockets of activity, this one passed by late last night.
It was interesting to observe, with such a small storm, what happened as it passed over a small group of islands just off the coast - the relative warmth differential of the island in relation to the sea caused the clouds to mushroom up causing further electrical discharge as it did so. 
Below is a shot of the "mushrooming", as well as a short vid showing some of the action.

Despite the lack of sleep, its a storm chasers paradise at the moment.
