On Saturday afternoon a line of storms were forming west of the Granite Belt, and I was watching them on radar wondering where to head to. After a great deal of indecision, I settled on the cane fields around Jacobs Well, wanting to catch some lightning over the cane fields. Do you think I could find a decent comp? I was up and down roads, tracks, trying to watch the radar and I was getting nowhere. I found this shed with moments to spare, got the ok from the land owner and hurriedly got some shots before this awesome cell let rip.

Some lightning would have been cool but this cell was moving damn quickly, and it was on us before I saw any lightning. I love a storm chase and combining it with photography is just the ultimate rush!!!
