Thunder, Lightning and Waterspouts
The tropical island of Koh Tao, Thailand, is famous as a diving destination. However, what would a tropical island be without tropical storms? When I was visiting, each evening brought magnificent displays of lightning by thunderstorms. This particular one was accompanied by three waterspouts, on of which can be seen forming between the lightning bolts. Another bigger one is advancing rapidly in the lower right corner. This storm wound up closely missing the northern tip of the island, sparing me and my camera from its downpour.
