This photo taken on November 18, 2013 at Point Arkwright, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
As terrifying as storms can be, watching their majesty holds a fascination for many people. The power, wild fury, changing moods, thunder and lightning, colours, rainbows all create exciting viewing.
This storm was all show with little fury, yet its show as it passed out to sea was spectacular.
The ocean became quite flat and the late afternoon sunlight lit up the different layers of clouds. As much as we enjoyed taking the photos, my wife and I just stood and watched in amazement. This was one of those truly special moments.
At the time, I knew there would be some wonderful photos for me to use in the future.
In 2017, when preparing photos for “Our Message“, I knew the storm from 2013 would have to be featured.
However, it wasn’t until after I had some test shots printed that my son noticed the clouds in the right hand side of the photo looked just like an outstretched arm in the sky.
Hence, this photo was chosen to go with the bible text, “Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven. And everyone will see him …”
