Braidwood Lightning - 24/01/15

A 5:50 minute compilation of an epic lightning show from a fantastic complex of storms on the Southern Tablelands south of Braidwood on the 24/01/15.

It was my first time using a new camera, so I have to work on a few setting for next time but it was such a spectacular event and sure will be one to remember.

Southern Tablelands Chase - 24/01/15

Myself and Chris had a good chase today.

Our target was Braidwood NSW. We baked in the hot sun as storms fired all around us except for our area, Despite this we kept our patience and finally jumped onto a developing storm just south of town.

A Lone Pelican Enjoy's the Sunrise.

As the sun slips above the horizon I notice a lone Pelican enjoying the first sun-rays of the day at Shoalhaven Heads in NSW. That moment a song came to mind....

When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
There's a golden sky
Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

40 second video covering some of yesterdays storms

Here, There & Everywhere

Today's chase proved rewarding but made for a long afternoon. I set off earlier in the afternoon after the storms which formed on the highlands near Taralga/Goulburn/Crookwell moving ESE towards the coast. I was able to capture a couple of bolts on video near Bundanoon on sunset, I made a little mistake and tried changing position a little closer to the storm but my efforts were stuffed by trees! During this small amount of time the storm decided to throw down some Epic CG's and then start to weaken as it moved off in to no man's land.
