Melbourne, Big city of lights

Borrowed the title name from Paul Kelly lyrics. Taken overlooking the big city as a thunderstorm approaches from the North West around 11.00pm last night with tropical humidity yet again. Wasn’t that much lightning but managed to snag a couple of CG’s. This is a two image stich but only used lightning from one, the other was used to get the city closer to the centre of the image with Port Philip Bay visible.

Paddock of Gold

Noticed a build up of storm clouds out the back of my place so headed out for a bit of a look. Ended up down a dirt track that I’d never been down before trying to get a good look at a passing storm when I eyeballed this scene and promtly ran across the paddock before the light faded and rain hit

 


Burning Bales

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


Stormy Ridge

Another Friday night storm, love them. Great build up, then massive downpour, then calm. Unfortunately during this time I was stuck in the office but I noticed whilst cooking the barby that there might be another one on the horizon so in no real rush headed out to a ridge that I┬áhadn’t tried before after an intuitive drive through some of the back roads of the southern Dandenongs. Came across this scene and waited for a bit, was happy with it, then the sun started filtering through lighting up the scene so fired off another round, happier again.
