Ride The Lightning by Jay Daley
www.flickr.com/photos/jaydaley Every summer as the storm season rolls around I dust off the camera and try my luck for some lightning shots but never with much success. This week Sydney has turned on the lights with spectacular thunderstorms rolling through in the evening every day so I was determined to try and change my striking misfortune. With one eye on the radar I decided to leave the comfort of the lounge (and a very gripping episode of The Walking Dead) to see what I could catch from a storm cell slowly moving north from Wollongong. I met Laurence in La Perouse and caught the northern end of the cell before it began to swing east. After a short while it was obvious that we should as well so with Metallica’s Ride The Lightning turned to the max we chased the lightning east and settled at Ben Boyd pool for a magical night of no rain, a starry sky and the lights I’ve so desperately wanted to see on the other side of my lens.
