A calm, sunny day erupted into a thunderstorm off the coast of Scotland for photographer Brian Matthews. Turbulent clouds streak the sky, and a downpour on the left releases a stream of precipitation. Storms like these were once uncommon in the United Kingdom, but with increasingly hot weather due to climate change, more water vapor and more energy in the atmosphere create conditions for storms like these.
