Storm 'a Comin'

February 07, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Sitting on the dunes of Sandy Cape, just North of Jurien Bay, Western Australia, my cousin and I were watching  an approaching storm. We had our kids in their tents, and the storm looked like it was going to be an absolute cracker!

I captured this photo with a long lens and about 40 second shutter speed. As I pressed the shutter when there was no lightning, it was a case of hoping some would strike. And it sure did!

The storm hit us at about 3am, waking us all up. The tents felt like they were going to fly away and we would end up in the Oz, with witches and flying monkeys everywhere! Luckily they held though - at least for us. Some of our nearby camping neighbours didn't fare so well, with gazebos and the like disappearing into the sky. 

I learnt the importance of guy-ropes that night!
