Day 282 – Coffs Jetty Lightning
It was a great night storm watching with a spectacular display of mother natures power, for me starting at Sawtell before the sunset, and making my way into Boambee Beach. After seeing a lot of action in skies to the west, I quickly moved to the northern end of Jetty Beach, where I viewed the height of the storm pass overhead. I moved to the northern breakwall as the storm passed, but my favorite photographs from the afternoon/evening were definitely in the harbour.
Heavy rain and even some hail was not deterring me from trying to capture these images. I’m sure those that spotted me thought I was absolutely crazy – after all, that lightning was getting rather close at some stages, and I did end up a little wet.
I love that moment when you know you have the shutter open capturing the light – or lack there of, and a spectacular strike comes across the sky. Let me know if you have a favorite.
