We had a severe lightning storm in Hobart this evening accompanied with torrential rain. One of the most intense storms I’ve ever seen here. Looking on the weather radar, the weather front streched some 1300 km to Broken Hill and Melbourne copped the brunt of it.
I set the Olympus up in LiveView mode, with exposures up to 1000 seconds. Now, you would think that would yeild lots of lightning, but of course it only flashed while I was wiping the lens or between shots 🤔 I finally managed to catch one in a second wave some time later. A large bolt hit the high voltage transmission tower on the hill … and that’s when we lost power 😔
All’s good, typing this on my phone under head torch light 😀 I don’t usually post on my phone, so lets see how this goes 😅
Enjoy your day.
