It could be quite dangerous in outback at thunderstorm as you could stuck for quite a while with your vehicle in the middle of nowhere. But clearing storm at sunset makes perfect light for photography. That was the case this time. Everything looked just fantastic and surrealistic.
There is only one problem with that light – it stays only for a couple of minutes and if you missed it then you missed it. You have to be in the right place, be ready for the light and all your gear (camera, right lens, remote control, tripod, filters etc) have to be ready in advance. You also need to look around as sometimes the best light appears not where you are expecting it. This shot was made with camera facing North-East while the sun was setting on… hmmm… West. As the old photographers’ saying goes: “The best sunrise/sunset photos are not photos of the sun but the scene on the opposite side.”
