These pictures were taken just before 1am as yet another cell moved through from the NW to the E out the front of my place at McLeans Ridges, NSW (refer to photos page 08 for shots earlier in the evening). There are normally some house lights showing on the hill the bolts are hitting, but the area was blacked out. These were all taken with the camera set to F4 and most exposure times about 1 minute.
