This video shows an approaching thunderstorm at the eveneing of Tuesday, 9th June 2009. It shows a dark shelfcloud coming from the western horizon. Within only two minutes, the thunderstorm has arrived and strong rain and a storm occured. I nearly hadn't the time to get my camera safely in my car. The tripod and me, which stood only about 10 seconds longer outside, were totally wet.
Filmed with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II dSLR and an EF 15 mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens.
