Sydney Lightning Show

Late Spring and Early Summer in Sydney is traditionally the time we see a lot of unstable storms move through. This week, we’ve been subject to them with consistency each afternoon and evening. Wednesday’s systems were quite severe and caused traffic dramas with flash flooding, caused electrical transformers to catch alight in Pyrmont and reportedly started at least one house fire.

Thursday’s systems came into Sydney later in the evening and put on a spectacular light show around the city around 10pm-midnight. As the night sky came alive, I setup my camera on the balcony and started to capture some great nearby strikes. As the storm rolled on they only became more spectacular.

You’ll find about a dozen images in this gallery

Here is an image of 6 stacked photos.

And a couple of individual frame.

Sydney Summer Storms

Every summer Sydney is treated to some fantastic demonstrations of nature as summer storms roll through. A weak system rolled through this evening and I managed to capture a little bit of the lightning. Here’s hoping for some more opportunities soon.
