Sometimes nature can do unexpected and magical things…

A stunning sunset over Sydney’s Northern Beaches was followed by an exciting lightning storm. It’s summer and still a warm 26 degress at this time of night so everyone on the beach was still swimming and taking it the storm as bolt after bolt struck. There were actually two storms on the horizon and they were both exploded with light, it was absolutely stunning.

Got this great capture standing on North Curl Curl Beach looking south towards Sydney city.

Software Used:

I used Adobe Lightroom to make minor adjustments then I used On1 Enhance and On1 Effects to stylise the image.


I shot this on the northern end of the beach facing south towards the city, so the glow in the sky is from both the sunset and the city lights. There is also a rockpool on this northern end that is great for photography.
