The Raging Stillness

Storm off Bundeena Cliffs, Royal National Park, just south of Sydney.


This shot has all my favourite elements in one image - the moon, stars, lightning, storm clouds, and ocean. What a treat this night was - getting some fantastic storms here. This is about the sixth I've photographed. There are two lightning cells here - the white one under the moon and the orange one off to the right of the main cloudbank.


This is one shot in a continuous sequence of 93 I shot. If you would like to see a video timelapse of the storm click here to see 45 minutes in 23 seconds:

If you would like to see a single shot blend of the 93 photos click here (very trippy):
