This is the 2nd post in this series about stormchasing. For those that haven’t seen part 1 you can view it here.
Summer has been good on the Darling Downs with plenty of storm action. To start this post off, I’ll show you a small storm I caught over Toowoomba city. These 3 images show how quickly the sky can change in a storm cell. This first shot was the sky to the west of the storm and it looks really pleasant. The sun rays (crepuscular rays) give it a nice calm feel.
Finally, 20 minutes later the sky turned dark right on sunset as the storm rolled right in. The golden light from the sunset under the clouds gives it a real imposing feel.
This final image is from another storm I caught moving west from the coast towards Toowoomba from Picnic Point. A few minutes after I caught this a massive fog bank rolled in that put a quick halt to any more storm photos.
I have a few more storm photos from out south of Toowoomba so I think I’ll make a third part to this post to show those together. Stay tuned. Any of the photos in these posts can be purchased as a print or canvas. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices.
