Images of Canberra – The lightning last night

By johnboy 12 January 2009 23

It was one hell of an electrical storm last night. RandomGit has sent in a photo taken by one of his friends for your consideration. (Click on the image for a larger version)

The Git sent it in with the following note:

    “Though Lightning shots are a dime a dozen, this one is panormaic and catches a moment when Telstra tower sucks one in.”

You can check out the photographer’s work here: http://www.jgphotographics.com/.

Damn, now it’s Thursday is the heat then some cooldown. The weather is all over the place right now. 38c on Wed, 36c on Thursday, and then it PLUMMETS down to an arctic 31c on Friday. Anyway, that all points to something happening Thursday evening sometime.

cyborgr, wednesday is now forecast to be 38c, with a bit of a drop the next day. I reckon that extreme heating, and then a sudden cool down should be good for a storm. There’ll be some cool air arriving from somewhere.

I haven’t nailed lightning yet. My pro-sumer just overexposes a big bright nothing on a long shutter, but I’m soon to acquire a relative’s 350d so have high hopes of finally getting something with it.
