Kimberley thunderstorm


As requested by Merv French here’s one of his favorites from my Kimberley book. Thanks for the comments mate! 

My friend Radek Dolecki and I were up in the Kimberley during the Wet a couple of years ago and got onto some really cool thunderstorms. Here’s one of them!

  1. I haven’t seen the whole book yet but I would venture a guess that this would end up my favourite as well. Stunning!!!! I love it, just my sorta thing. Red outback dirt road to infinity, great big dramatic clouds – with a bolt of lightning. Just amazing!

    PS. I reckon the keyboard left out a t in the title in the image 🙂

    • Thanks Flemming. I reckon you’d have lots of favorites. I too love wide open landscapes with dirt roads. And of course also look for great cloud formations. Thanks too for the spell check! Cheers mate
