Had my first proper chase for the season today. There was a chance of storms firing up a few hundred KM’s north of Perth around Carnamah and Coorow. I headed up the Midlands Road to Moora and found a great vantage point just to the north near Coomberdale. There was a well developed storm to the north and as it moved south I was able to get a few shots of the impressive structure. There was some IC lightning, but I didn’t capture any and I didn’t see any CG’s. I later found out that this storm dumped over 60mm of rain on Carnamah in 20minutes and flooded the town, inundating the local IGA and a couple of other stores in the main street.

As the storm was beginning to decay, I moved south to a spot just west of Moora. The sky turned the most amazing sepia colour. These images have not been altered in any way.
