Watching, waiting

We have had some pretty bizarre storms in Sydney in the last week, from gale force winds and wet season style rainfall to hail, we have had it all.
Yesterday, about 30 minutes after this image was taken myself and the girls drove home through some streets covered in ankle deep hail stones to find our place had been turned into a winter wonderland (without any leaves or foliage left :( ).
No need for that thredbo visit this year ;) we got our snowman built in the backyard and ice slide (albeit only big enough for a kid) in the front yard.

As we climbed to the top of the hill at the park amongst growing darkness and increasing lightning, Chaos rightly stated that we should not hang around due to the lightning, luckily she mentioned it when she did, since we pulled the pin on our regular park bash and just as we got to the car it started raining.

I processed this image a few times and then realised, it looked best straight out of the camera. Thus the only PP on this image was the stitching of the frames into a panorama. This will make all ya lovers happy ;)

I hope ya'all survived the weather.

  1. Glad that daddy listened to Chaos (she had good sense ;)
    Great stitching work, kind of like the little curve toward the left side, it really shows as the little hill!

  2. Great #sooc +Gerard Blacklock​ this really works as a silhouette. A fine example of how alluding to detail can be more effective. :) On the weather ,there were still 30cm drifts of hail on the side of the road the next morning here in the innerwest. Just crazy.

    i know man! we built a snowman in the backyard and the remnants of it were still there this morning! Pretty cool snowman too, nearly as tall as chaos.
    The slide out the front was good too and a small amount still there this morning also :)

  5. Wow its still there +Gerard Blacklock​? Ashfield wasn't too bad with just a light dusting. I was staying with a friend in stanmore for the night and it was between there and Lewisham that I saw the worst of it. Very cool with the snow creations. I bet the kids had a ball :)
