Silence Before The Storm - Moods of A City # 28 - Sydney Australia by 


65 Favourites, 4522 Views

This shot was taken from Berrys Bay/ Balls Head Park on the north shore of Sydney taken on Wednesday 28th May 2008 around 5pm.

As you can see the clouds herald what is to come, the buildings are lit by pre storm light combined with the last rays of day light.

The storm that followed was quite severe with 868 recorded lightning strikes, just have to love the clouds and light.

Equipment used Nikon D300 and Nikon 18 – 200mm lens.

    Outstanding wide angle shot, Philip! The clouds and light are fabulous. I also really like the moored yachts in the foreground with the CBD in behind – recreation and work all in the one image.
