Calm Before The... by Syndyne Calm Before The... by Syndyne
...Storm! Yes, finally! :D

Taken out on the old Phone Line opal fields, Lightning Ridge N.S.W. on the 9.12.12 at 11:26pm EDST.

Okay, last night was pretty amazing by storm standards. This was a monster single cell highly active storm raging out on the plains just East of town and headed away North East. Once again I was on foot so it was about a kilometre walk out there but very much worth it.

What I soon realised is that a new storm was building directly behind me here and already highly active. I had to put in a plan to move before too long so I could walk a further two kilometres back out to the western facing opal fields to grab a bit of the sheer onslaught we were soon to receive over the coming three hours. Oh boy...

EXIF:
Canon 5D MkIII
30seconds
f/2.8
ISO800
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens
16mm @ Infinity Focus

Thanks kindly sir!

These 5D's are surely worth their weight in gold (which is about what they cost anyhow lol) for this type of work.

Cheers for the comment :wave:

I trust you're smart enough to have an extra card along for just such occasions. This one is an interesting focus...kind of leads the eye.
