Artist's Description

Melbourne severe thunderstorm, 3 Dec 2003.
This horizontal bolt appears to cover about 30km within this frame taken with a very wide angle lens and extended a further 20km or more to the right (out of frame). I could hear it travelling from right to left across the sky and was relatively low (below cloud level). Although I was near the top of a hill to get these shots it felt unusually safe as the lightning on this occassion was nearly all cloud to cloud and intra-cloud lightning with surprisingly few cloud to ground strikes. Very heavy rain soon followed.
Rolliflex SL66, 90mm wide angle lens, Fuji Velvia film.
