Burning Bales

Just adding an alternative to the previous post. Totally different lighting taken only minutes apart. Whatever bundles your hay I guess…..

The Last of 2009

Happy New Year to all. Wasn’t  on the sauce last night due to a course of anti biotics, which meant that I could storm chase of sorts, only had to drive 5 minutes to my favourite lookout with a 360, the Yarra Valley on one side, the bays on the other.  This shot was taken just before an impressive storm cell dumped 30mm of rain with the best natural fireworks that I’ve seen in while. Good way to cap the year off. This shot is straight out of the camera.

‘Strike a light’

Tony Middleton’s storm chasing exploits and subsequent brilliant shots has inspired me to go hunting through some of mine……. This was from a storm back in Dec ’04 and was taken from the deck of my previous house on the edge of Dandenong Ranges National Park….looking towards the action over Melbourne. It was some show, 35 kms away. This is a 3 image blend,  not done particularly well but as each image was 20 seconds you get the idea of the amount of lightning strikes in a minute…..


Mallacoota Storm


Managed to capture a nice lightning show at Mallacoota, a peaceful little town in Far East Gippsland.
