Under the Weather

 

On Anzac Day 2015, I noticed a dark storm brewing.  I grabbed my tripod, camera and husband and headed to one of my favourite vantage points..Bradley's Head in the hope of capturing some interesting cloud formations over the city.  As we neared our destination, we were caught in a ferocious hail storm and had to pull over.  We listened to Mother Nature's fury pellet the car and accepted that the photographic opportunity had likely passed.  Minutes later, however, the storm eased and headed towards the City of Sydney.  I was able to capture this powerful image and thought it a very fitting end to the 100th Commemoration of Anzac Day.
