Unsettled weather has typified the start of the warmer summer months here and this particular weekend was no different. After a belt of storms had passed overhead, I noticed a gap of fairly clear sky on the horizon to the south-west and I wondered if there might be a bit of a sneaky lightshow around sunset. So I quickly hopped in the car and drove to Gerroa. I was greeted with a lovely splash of colour as the sun broke through some low clouds. On the beach the tide was so low that the creek (normally about thigh-deep) was just sand so I walked over to my usual spot to capture the reflected light in the sand ripples and enjoyed a great splash of colour. About 15 minutes later, as night fell, the rain returned.
