A February storm unleashes its power in the beauty of non-stop lightning over Spencer Gulf in South Australia.

This 15 second exposure shows just a small sample of a spectacular night’s viewing. The tiny lit chimney, that you can see on the left (which belongs to the lead smelter in Port Pirie), is actually 205 metres in height, which gives perspective to this, the power of natures finest glory.
