I love Humphrey's copper fountains. As a retired goldsmith his work shows grace and finesse - no-one does it better. The copper changes colour as it weathers to verdigris. And the water tinkles as it drips down from leaf to leaf and then into the pool below.
I spent the night out with my dad enjoying the crazy thunder storm we had last night (the thunder was so loud I literally ducked in cover once or twice) and enjoyed the Lightning show that went on as well. Today is a bit stormy as well so as such it seemed appropriate to give this another look as its my favorite kind of weather.
A bolt of lightning strikes the sea near Pula, Croatia. Amateur photographer and full time shipbuilder, Matija Sculac, 35, did not have to travel far to catch his favourite extreme weather - these lightning shows happened on his doorstep. Matija carefully monitors local weather each day for the slightest hint of a lighting storm and when one breaks he travels to his favourite spots to capture the action.
