At 1:30am Monday 27th October a series of storms swept through Victoria. This was the second band of a number of storm fronts to hit Melbourne city. 80,000 lightning strikes were recorded across the state.
Multiple forks hit one after the other as a massive storm moves out over the Tasman Sea, Australia.
This is one 30 second (ish) exposure and not multiple photos stitched together.
Keeping my gear dry is the biggest challenge but the biggest fear in a storm like this is getting struck!
