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.

The puddles were so deep I thought my little car was going to drown!

It was like someone had a strobelight going in the backyard for a good while there.

… it’s still going where I am. And to the person who dumped the Maltese dog on the King’s Highway, 4 of us stopped and rescued it. Words fail me.

The dog probably escaped in fright.

Damn shed flooded by the storm. My collection of Fabergé eggs ruined! And the first print run of Origin of the Species, all muddy. 🙁

Put eggs on the book and let the lightning strike it.

(…it’s…it’s ALIVE!)

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Spectacular! I’ve never seen a lightening storm like last night’s – it just didn’t quit.

What’s the go with that insanity tattoo?

Do they stamp you when you get committed?

Yeah…going to have to check my roof after this one.

Best thunderstorm I’ve heard since moving here in ’09!

Previous attempt to post this 5 mins ago was cut short when the power went off here in Lyneham. Was only momentarily though.

OzChick 11:02 pm 29 Nov 11

Some amazing lightning action at the moment (23:00). I hope someone is taking pics.
