........or so we thought but at 8.20pm on (Friday 5th March) after it got dark and we were driving back to Bendigo we caught this to our north east and I had to use f2.8 1/5 sec ISO1600 to get these grainy handheld shots:

Finally I have been able to process some photos and here are some panoramic stitches of the storms John and I chased (and ran from!) on the 6th and 7th March in central and north central Vic and south central NSW.  Some of these pano's are up to 7 wide-angle shots joined together so keep in mind that these storms were much much closer and much bigger than might appear at first glance. I will also post some single images which are well worth it.



hmmm June 2nd......

Rather than posting heaps of individual images on the forum (which can be time very time consuming) here is a link to an album from which you can view them:

note - the images are in reverse chronological order until you click the 'sort oldest' button

Hi Brad,
