Surfers Paradise at Night with a quick Storm rolling in. Raining Cats and Dogs not long after this and had to seek shelter from the storm.

Maybe next one will yield better………. has anyone found my photo inspiration? I lost it some where

    Excellent image. I admire your bravery in being outside capturing our sever storms.

  • You only really need to be prepared to get wet. Once the Storm gets too close you will need to seek shelter from the rain(plus any close Lightning Strikes)

    Very Nice! I reckon it would look even better in a Pano crop. Superb!

  • Pano does look alright and I’ll print this locally like that. When RB offers better pano prints I’ll upload pano images here.
