Exciting weather, or maybe not

A storm hit Melbourne tonight. It had been forecast for days and in my experience, such a lead up ends up being a disappointing and undramatic storm. Not so in some parts of Melbourne though. This is my effort at capturing the foreboding approach. While it wasn't quite sunny, the eastern sky was quite light and reflecting on the buildings. Others have done better, or differently.

  10. Don't know Ben, but you can be quite isolated from the weather if you keep the blinds shut.
