Lightning Active Storms Hunter 12/1/13 4

I was staying with my girlfriend for a weekend getaway a Pokolbin. We endured a 44 degree day on Saturday.. was hotter than the previous Tuesday! The pool was used adequately. To my surprise an extremely lightning active storm formed during the evening.. putting on the best CG display I have seen in 4-5 years. I saw countless amounts of CG's, most of amazing quality, with some pulsing up to 8 times. If only I had brought the video camera. I had the SLR and managed around 10 daytime strikes from pure reflex.. considering I have only gotten one the past 2 years gives insight as to how active it was!

I chased some storms straight after work to Grafton.  I wondered if I would make it in time since they were already north of Woolgoolga when I left but managed to drive through the storms and out the other side in time to take some pics. They were nothing spectacular aside from sime very heavy rainfall on the north side of Grafton but it was good to get out for another chase again. An nice sunset was a bonus!
