Kaypezz sent in this lightning shot with this note:

I’ve been trying to perfect my lightning photography for over a year, and tonight I thought (well, I FEEL like) I hit the jackpot! This one was taken at Ngunnawal, overlooking the Gungahlin Lakes Golf Course towards the north-west.


And while we’re on the subject of the delicate sound of thunder:

re Greg’s images, i was on the summit of Mt Ainslie watching the fronts come in at the same time that he was. There were several photographers armed with tripods, and they were only too happy to show the results of their patience. One guy was getting shots like Greg has captured over and over – he had a prime position, looking out over Gungahlin, and his labors were well worth it. I got one measly strike photo with the iPhone, but it was worth it to be there to watch the storm coming in.

The next time there is an event like this, come on up to mount Ainslie, but only if you feel comfortable in doing so. It is magical when the cells come over Canberra, the lightning shows are spectacular, but we kept an eye on the distance the storm was from us, and bailed when it was too close for comfort.
