Prior to Storm

On St. Stephen’s Day in Hungary there were all sorts of entertainment for the masses. It was the national day of Hungary, the founding day of the kingdom and a public holiday. A Red Bull Air Race was held over the Danube and after that there was a grand fireworks display.

Not only that, the nature herself put up quite a show. A heavy thunderstorm was rising and I managed to snap a picture of one of the lightning strikes.

Unfortunately the storm did induce a panic in the crowd. The heavy rain and strong winds snapped branches off the trees and tiles from the roofs of the buildings. The result being a couple of deaths and a whole bunch load of injured people. Very unfortunate.
