Autumn Storms over the South West 16-5-13

I was woken this morning by the deep rumble of thunder in the distance.
I am usually rather lethargic getting out of bed in the morning, but that beautiful sound that is thunder, I am up in a flash. I was dressed and ready to head out within a few minutes.

When I glanced outside, the early morning rays of the sun were just touching the base of the clouds. I raced down the stairs of my hotel room, jumped in my car and got to the beach.
This is what greeted me.


With reports from the Yallingup area that the storms were dropping water spouts behind me, I had to make the trip towards home.
The potential for storms to still fire into the night was still there, so with that in mind, I headed to Jindalee beach once I finished work and managed to capture this strike.


The lightning wasn’t very frequent, so I am somewhat happy with this, because it was the best shot of the night.
I do love every type of thunderstorm, but the summer ones where I can chase them around the Wheatbelt region are far more enjoyable, and you can get a hell of a lot closer.

Bring back summer already.

I hope you like the images.
