Storm Chase and a Sunset on a Humid Mid-Summer Afternoon

One of the advantages of working for myself is that I can down tools when I want if interesting photographic situations arise. I knew storms were forecast and the local storm chasers had posted on Facebook that there were good prospects for some decent storm activity, so I was keeping an eye on the sky. Mid-afternoon I looked out of the office window and the clouds were looking decidedly stormy, so I checked the radar and saw a line of storms all queued up in the west. I grabbed my camera bag and headed out in the Kluger which is far better suited to stormy weather photography than my Golf. Initially I headed to Shoalhaven Heads, but I realised I wouldn’t have a good enough angle on the approaching storm so I went a bit further north to Berrys Beach in mid-Seven Mile and this turned out to be the perfect location to view the storm’s approach …

For the last 16 years I’ve been photographing, blogging (and more recently vlogging) about everything I find, see and enjoy here in South Coast, New South Wales. This is my blogging site focused on my hobby (and part-time job) of photography. Please enjoy my little writing and my photography and I’d love to hear your feedback.
