Storm clouds over Glasgow

The storm was flagged well in advance as a consequnce of which I took off this morning to an elevated vantage point in south Glasgow in order to capture images and videos of the conditions. As it happens the weather was not quite as violent as I had expected but, nevertheless, the storm did produce some interesting light conditions whilst the winds can be heard on the video clips.
