Nice to see that Moon creeping into this spectacular display of natures beauty! The colouring was so strange at this stage. Some partial distant cloud on the horizon was only just offering a splash of pink across this great looking storm cell after the Sun had set. It was quite distant from us here and sitting to our North way up over the QLD border area.
Boy, this storm season has offered up a little bit of everything so far. Looking forward to what it throws down over the coming months until March -when it will finally tend to recede again back into the cooler weather.
