I don’t know about you guys but a sky that’s roaring and electrified gives me goosebumps and goosebumps, don’t even get me started. I love the song Thunderstruck by the Australian classic rock band, AC/DC and the song Thunder by alternative rock band Imagine Dragons and I love the sound of thunder as it cracks and reverberates through the sky.
The louder and more rumble a thunderclap is, the more joyous I get because thunder is usually accompanied by life-up-my-life lightning. For each stinking hot, sweaty day the Australian summer brings without barely lifting a finger, the possibility of impending doom and gloom from the skies makes drowning in your own sweat all worth it.
It’s my favourite thing about summer. I will often go out trying to find where to snap some lightning shots but ridiculously, I always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. God damn you!
It doesn’t help than I seem to be in a supernatural dome that appears as though it divides the storm cells as a crazy amount of times, they seem to go every which way except for where ever the hell I am.
Either that or there are just no bolts on display. They’re all hiding within the clouds taunting me as if they were demons playing games, going hehe.
If it’s not dodgem bolts or bolts hidden within the clouds, then it’s just freaking raining on me which means my favourite past time of shooting anything and everything is hindered by raindrops ruining any photo I get whilst also doing its bit to hide the good stuff.
It takes a whole lot of good luck to get the gold stuff and yesterday, my pot of unluck ran out, and conditions were perfect and I was in a great place. After all that running around, I finally got some gold.
