    Heart of the Storm

    I grabbed this snap a couple of days ago during the "storm the size of Australia" that was bringing horiffic snow storms in Invercargil (south end of the country) and severe winds up the North end of the country.

    I live in Nelson (pretty much in the middle) and I have to say that more often than not, we're sheltered from most of the bad weather. Not surprisingly we usually win the national competition for the most sunshine hours.

    It sort of breaks the rule of thirds, accepting the tip of the shadow is bang on a vertical and horizontal third, but it really works well. A complex composition and very nicely done. You know what a stickler I am for sticking to rules

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for that. It wasn't supposed to be anything particularly artistic - I just wanted to grab a record of the dumping of snow we had due to the storm. Shot with 14mm lens on a FF camera so "slightly wide angle"

    Hi Colin,

    Nelson sounds like the east coast of Tasmania - despite their southerly latitude they have more hours of sunlight and less rain in the winter than the other southern state of Australia.

    You could be right Colin, but I am sure the waves were a couple of inches taller.

    That storm would be the same one that hit Tasmania a few days earlier. I saw the TV pictures of people stranded in the snow and looking for their cars buried under meters of snow. Meanwhile, here in Queensland the storm, as you can see, was somewhat milder.

    Those people baking themselves in the sun are mainly tourists from the UK and down south. Queenslanders don't go out in the midday sun.

    Sounds a bit like Clacton, but nowhere near as pretty.
