lightening storm

Storm over Sydney

April, 2015

This storm dumped bucket loads of hail around Sydney on the weekend before moving out to sea. I was further south in the dry (pays to check the satellite images) on a photo quest and stayed around to capture lightening bolts as the sun disappeared. Never really shot something like this before. Totally epic photos all weekend long! Stay tuned 😄


Have you ever seen lightning make such crazy shapes? This bolt looks like a Tyrannosaurus rex getting ready to chomp a formation at Blue Mesa in Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park. Monsoons usher in summer lightning, so explore safely and be sure to check the weather. Photo by Hallie Larsen, National Park Service.

Lightening at Long Reef

Last week I drove down to my favourite sunset spot on the coast north of Sydney. There were plenty of massive clouds around and I was hoping for something epic. So the sunset was pretty nice, but then the lightening started! It was passing by to the south and north so I got a great view out on the point. Later the storm eventually got to me and bucketed down - I was totally drenched and now the speakers on my phone don’t work properly. Worth the shot? I hope so….. (i need this shot to earn $1000 i guess)
