With 2 cyclones hitting north and north-eastern Australia causing billions of dollars in damage and flash flooding this week, I thought it might be timely to share a small storm which hit Melbourne back in 2015. At the time I was living in a 3rd floor apartment that had an uninterrupted view across the rooftops and surrounding skies.
These images were made exactly 5 minutes apart over one hour.
It was only a small burst of heavy rain, but just shows how the skies can change very quickly.
I made these images with my DSLR on a tripod from the warmth of my lounge room.
This image was made 5 minutes after the photo in the previous post (and that previous post image was made 5 minutes after the previous post to that). So, 3 images 5 minutes apart and at different focal lengths can have very different colours. The focus is soft in this shot, but the sky was a lovely colour all the same and deserves sharing on this particular blog (devoted to clouds and sky colours).
