Recorded in a field in the village of Crawley Down, this nasty storm resulted from a cold front passing East as the storms moved North East. I was not expecting the thunder to get as close as it did, so the mic amp was turned up a bit to high and as a result some clipping occurred. Recorded on the internal mics, with the original foam wind shield & dead cat. Just before the first close strike, you can hear a click in the right hand channel. This was the over head power line " flashing over" as the lighting struck it.

    Hi Just wanted to say I have used your sound on an animation I made (its on my youtube channel -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5xO-nAargw&t=4s) you don't have to watch it !
    The sound was exactly what I was looking for. The thunderclap is great! Thank you.
    I have credited you in the credits (at the end).

    Good ambiance at least even if I don't pick a particular lightning for my lightning sound.
