I was very lucky not to get very wet while shooting this shot. I should probably have run straight for shelter but it was just too spectacular shot not to take the time capture it. This is a stitching together of five over-lapping shots at 18mm. As soon as I took the shot I bundled the camera into my bag and cycled home as quick as I could, I made it in the door with about ten seconds to spare before the heavens opened!

This shot was taken from Mullen Bridge (the bridge on the Straffan road at the entrance to the train station) looking East towards Dublin. The track you see is the Dublin to Sligo railway line and the canal is the Royal Canal which connects Dublin to the river Shannon.
