    oooo….nearly wet season, eh? Have you travelled out onto the mudflats from this tree at all? Seems to be a popular location, from what I saw!

    Love the backdrop of lightning and sun rays :)

  • Yep! Got sooooo many cloud photos, Mel… I don’t know where to start!!!! :)

    Don’t forget to take some of just clouds, you never know when you’ll need a cloud shot. They also make great textures when working with overlays….but don’t tell anyone, ok? heh

  • Lol!!! Okay, it’s a secret between you, me and everyone reading this. ;p

    Fantastic Meike, what a treat to find an image like this, I bet you all had the most wonderful time !!!
    What an impact that little piece of lightning makes.

  • Thanks very much, Dianne! This one was actually just the other night, whereas the Moonlight shot was while Mel and Robyn were visiting back in August (there weren’t any leaves on the tree then!). I was so happy to actually get the lightning – I just kept clicking until I got it!!! Fortunately the clouds co-operated too :) :) :)
