If you live in SE QLD or Northern NSW, you would have found it impossible not to hear this storm cell that fiercely lashed the coast this evening! We went out chasing all night and struggled to get a clear CG (cloud to ground) strike as they were scattered and hard to predict. We’ve always wanted to shoot here and compose this particular shot and last night with some patience, it paid off.
After the first line of storms passed and so too the second, we hadn’t quite captured anything we were happy with, then around 2:30am when we were packing up…BOOM! This massive cell exploded offshore and brought with it some incredible bolts, flash flooding and powerfully strong winds (R.I.P. Our fav Umbrella). We got VERY lucky to capture this and of late had been cursed with Storm Chases that have ended with nothing, but persistence has paid off...
