Thursday's rather impressive thunderstorm bears down on the inner Hobart suburb of Moonah with the CBD out of frame (to the left) to follow. kynyani/Mount Wellington on the skyline.

TasNetworks (the power co) estimated some 10,000 separate lighting discharges with approximately 2,000 making contact with the ground.

Power was knocked out, roads flooded and fruit crops damaged in 90 minutes of chaos.

I was on the other side of the river but only managed a couple of frames with actual strikes in them. Other folk fared a bit better. My ageing reflexes cannot beat a lighting trigger! My own house is just a bit to the left of the strike but nothing to report.

Around 10 minutes after this frame I lost sight of the opposite shore due to rain and hail. Will post one from beside the bridge (left) at some point. Have a roll of film as well - hopefully some drama amongst those.

Nikon Z6, Nikkor Z 24-200/4-6.3, 1/40th sec at f/11, ISO 200. FL ~26mm

Ocean Beach near Strahan on Tasmania's west coast. Cape Sorell at the left with the lighthouse lost in the gloom. The marks of vehicles in the foreground sand with the Great Southern Ocean stretching out into the murk, all the way to Argentina.

An archive frame of a wild day at the edge of the world - 2014

The quite remarkable Cirque de Lescun in the Apse Valley, French Pyrenees. Just out of shot to the right is the very pretty village of Lescun.

This frame is from very deep in the archives and shows that while my editing might possibly have picked up a bit in 8 years, the value of having quality, exposure data in the RAW files is more than important.

The light was pretty challenging with massive storm cells forming overhead but off in the distance the cliffs were in full sun.

I knew nothing then but had I known the importance of protecting highlights perhaps this may have been a different frame. That said, I could easily have replaced the sky but what would that have meant for the vibe on the day?

We were treated to a totally wild, 12 hour storm that night which left even the locals thunderstruck... Also, there's some fabulous Jurassic cheese to be had in the Apse Valley :-P

Nikon D7000, Nikkor AF-S 12-24mm f/4 DX, 1/160th sec at f/6.3, ISO 400 (yes it really was that dark).

A very big 'Thank You' to everyone that views, faves and comments on my work! It's really appreciated :-)

From Lake Vahvanen in the Northern Savonia region of Finland, the lights of Jyväskylä below the Milky Way.

Another archive frame. Spent 5 days here on the lake in a little cabin with nothing but red squirrels for company. We'll forget about the bloke across the lake with the frinking leaf blower. Seriously dude - get a rake.

Fujifilm X-T1, Samyang 12mm f/2 NCS, 20 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 5000.

Starfish Hill from Twelvetrees Range in the South West Wilderness National Park, Tasmania. Lake (fake) Pedder in the foreground with the Wilmot Range/Tribulation Ridge behind the Hill. Coronation Peak (1054m) to the left of the hill.

Perfect afternoon back in mid-June this year.

Nikon Z6, Nikkor AF-S 70-20mm f/4 VR, 1/400th sec at f/8, ISO 100 FL ~ 95mm

The lake was created by the still-contentious damming of the Serpentine River in the 1970's.

Full size so please make it BIG :-)
