Late one night I saw this storm approaching my house in Newcastle. I quickly grabbed my gear and ran down to the end of the street to await the storm's arrival. I took some 20 images of 3 minutes exposure each and was lucky enough to capture this. Many people ask me if I got wet, and the answer is no! I left when I felt that the storm was getting too close for comfort, no sooner than I had gotten back into the house did the rain come down in bucket loads!
