Photographer's Note

On the way to Mitta Mitta one day in November, last year, I halted not far from the small township of Tangambalanga, and just before entering the forests of the Lockhart's Gap road, to take a photo of this looming storm and the rainbow. Sheets of heavy rain fell from a dark sky on to nearby hills, but there were still areas of blue sky close by. A few minutes later I drove on, but found that I was driving into the storm itself, which by that time had reached the road you can see in the lower part of the photo. It tore branches from the eucalyptus trees and caused some small rocks to fall from the walls of the cuttings through the mountains. Within a few minutes more it had passed and before I reached Mitta Mitta the sky was clear and the air still. This area is about 300km from Melbourne, to the north east.
