Storm Front

A giant black curtain is drawn across the land.

Last Sunday evening we had a storm front pass through just on dusk. We didn't suffer the full brunt of it, unlike some parts of Brisbane which have been declared a disaster area, but this is what it looks like a few minutes before the wind and rain hits!

The last of the blue sky is still visible under the cloud for now, but in less than thirty seconds all sunlight is obliterated.

Oh wow, what a fantastic shot!
You caught a most dramatic moment.

Glad you didn't suffer too much from the storm. Sorry about the other areas around BNE.

Wow. That is some storm moving across your landscape. Ours are starting to be filled with some snow. Thanks for the visit and also the compliment on the header on the birds blog.

It's like a black velvet drape that has been slahed around the middle. Incredib;e and not at all an easy shot.

Looks like the end of the world..I'd have been hiding in the cellar. It made a dramatic photo though.
