Weather photo of the week: Dec 27
Readers' Reports - We want your weather photos
Each week we feature our favourite reader weather photo. Daniel Bailey sent this one in from Dunedin.
I flew into Dunedin airport on Christmas Eve evening from 100-plus kilometre gusts forecast in Wellington to possible thunderstorms in Dunedin.
On the way down the coast off Dunedin I spotted cumulonimbus clouds over the land so knew we may be in for some cool weather after landing.
After leaving the airport I spotted this cloud looming on the horizon and found a nice spot to try to take a photo of it.
Within 15 minutes there were some nice bolts of light coming out of it.
