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

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.
