I love storms
This winter storm was quite unusual and unexpected. Shooting from the lookout above Umina beach I had a clear view of the storms passage out of the mouth of the Hawksbury River and over Lion Island. The cloud form was illuminated by flashes of lightning and the sodium lights from Sydney, part of Pittwater is visible on the right of the image. This photo wass taken using a Nikon D3000 and the 70-200 VR lens. A great combination when the storm is over 10km away.
