managed to just squeeze this in before it started to bucket down- the winds went gale force. Normally I shoot from the other side of the broadwater but the storm split and ended up behind me. The Broadwater overlooking Sundale Bridge/Southport, Gold Coast (03/12/08)
Got some more from the other side but the buildings were in the way a bit(was heading to the beach before the downpour)

    WOW the news said lost power in b/bane . did it happen down there

  • It seemed to bypass the coast(north and south) At a guess that would have landed back of Southport/Musgrave Hill area. The rest went out to sea and up the coast
