Walk on the wild side…

This spectacular gustfront was surging across Westernport bay and engulfing all before it, including French Island. I had very little time to set up and compose this image, in fact this was the only set of images I got of it before lashing gale force winds and heavy rain sent me scurrying for my vehicle.
