A brutal and spectacular display of lightning moved over Bass Strait. In this image twin CG’s pound the ocean off Cape Woolamai and come within a whisker of striking a boat. You can see a light from the boat just to the right of the lefthand CG/bolt – no doubt a pretty exciting experience for those on board…

    • Thanks Geoff – shows like this are not very common in my area either… Grr. This one was a ripper though ! πŸ™‚
      thanks for stopping by.

  2. Whoa great capture.. Love the motion in the grass up front too.. I think I will stick to the shore line and not get on a boat with stuff like that comin ;).

    Great work

    • Thanks Jeremy ! It was a bit windy so all the foreshore grasses show that a bit.


  3. Wicked shot Tony. That large strike looks like its so close. I think I would’ve done a runner after I’d seen that one!

    either way, it’s a stunning photo

    • hi Chloe,
      There may have very well been a few dirty jocks on the boat after that I’d think ! I was all over this storm well well in advance πŸ™‚
