This was taken on the border of Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
I was in the Northern Territory and the storm was in Western Australia.
The storms this night went for 12 hours. This was the first of the night.
In this part of the tropics, the clouds themselves don't move. New storms
develop from the main cell. The one pictured here was just starting to split
into two sections. The first is developing to the right of the photo and slightly
away, the second is developing closer to me. It eventually hid the one behind
These were the most amazing storms I have ever watched. You could
literally see the clouds eating up the clear air in front.
