Approaching Storm

Sometimes and only sometimes when living in a big city one can have just enough time to get to a vantage point for a photograph.  Today was such a day for me.  I had just looked at the weather radar and noticed that a large frontal system was rapidly approaching Melbourne.  Moreover I had nothing planned so it was a  case of quickly packing the camera gear and head off to the nearest bayside suburb to my place, normally about a 30 minute drive.

Upon arriving I had plenty of time to setup with the intention of taking a panorama of the storm as it approached.  However the conditions were what would call hostile.  Strong winds gusting up to 100Km’s and every bit of sand on the beach on the move.  It quickly became apparent that if I did not want to have to buy new equipment then I had better keep the gear exposure to the elements to a minimum.  For me I am still trying to get the sand out of my eyes.  Out of all of the photos I really only found one that depicted the storm front really well.  There are a few others that are ok but this one is the best.


Hope you like it.
