Saturday afternoon 15 March, much of Sydney experienced a thunderstorm although towards Baulkham Hills, it was quite significant. I went up to a lookout at Bella Vista overlooking the private hospital which provides me with excellent views towards the south and west and I did not need to do anything more.
Initially, I photographed a cell over Putty which appeared to be an LP cell but not feasible to chase given its location. That cell from a distance had interesting structure for a while but I decided after a number of photographs to let it go.
The cell to the west of Sydney was building and began to produce some good lightning strikes.
