Postby lightningwog » Fri May 20, 2011 6:08 pm

Drove down to watermans beach southside carpark around 530am nothing really to look at just pre showers

Image

Image

615am first light coming thru stil pre showers

Image

overlooking hillarys boat harbour with a shower heading my way and it came over in about 10sec after i took this shot

Image

Image

Image

A rain burst on the horizon

Image

starting to get some good light and a understanding where and what the front was doing

Image

Image

Image

Got bored so i took some pics of the waves crashing into the rocks as the front was stil other hr a way

Image

Image

Image

Image

In this pic the front was a 5-10 kms out from rotto and also hitting mandurah and bunbury picking up 13mm at that time

Image

Image

Rotto getting swallowed up by the front as it disappears from view

Image

Image

You can see the rain approaching thick and fast only took a minute or two to come over

Image

Image

Finally the front arrives 815am

The water coming up through the rocks one Simon? I think that one would make a good print. :)
