In Victoria, Australia the 19th of December was a stinking hot day, with a maximum of around 41 Degrees celsius being reached during the day. This was one of a number of days of hot weather, and towards the late afternoon, we got a great storm come through Pakenham. The storm including heavy rain, wind and some lightning and as is often the case, I was unable to capture the storm front coming through, however, during a break in the storm the sun started to shine through the clouds creating brilliant rays of light.
The image below is the capture of the rays of light, captured as a HDR style image (multiple exposures blended into one) and then tweaked in lightroom to better reflect the appearance whilst I was out capturing the photos. Sadly tomorrow is predicted to be hot again but, at least the storm brought some respite with it in terms of the heat.
