This electrical storm over Lake Macquarie on New South Wales central coast was incredible....... I was staying in a caravan park at Belmont when I noticed some lightning on the horizon over a distant mountain range. By the time I had set up my camera it was well and truly underway. At the height of the activity it was averaging 15-20 strikes a minute....I started a time lapse recording of the event and the storm lasted for well over an hour . This multiple exposure from the sequence lasted for about 10 minutes....look at all those strikes! I havent seen a storm this intense for a long time.
