Yet Another Quindalup Boat Ramp Image! This must be the most photographed boat ramp in Australia. I was woken up about 1:00am by lightning flashes so I got up and drove down to the boat ramp. There was already a photographer there!
This is a second attempt following some suggestions by Mark Stothard. I reworked it from scratch with the intent of converting to B/W. (I removed the original version because of some errors – shouldn’t rush these things. I never seem to have time to do it right, but always have time to do it twice!
I took this from our balcony Saturday night around 11. This was taken over a 15 minute period. I used a torch to light up the garden in the foreground. Most of the lightning was “sheet” lightning – the whole sky was lighting up. At this stage the main storm appeared to be over Bridgetown ( by looking at the weather radar!). You can see a couple of lightning strikes low in the sky though.
You can also see the lights of Busselton, Capel, and Peppermint Grove Beach. These are the red lights on the horizon, low in the image (to the left of the lightning strikes. Busselton is the rightmost patch of red lights. The 3 red vertical dots are the ABC transmitting mast at Siesta Park.
