This was taken just couple weeks ago (21/10/12) in Gold Coast, Australia. I was reading some weather updates on the Internet that evening and noticed that big storm was coming from the West. I had to move quickly as I had to drive to this location approx. 15 min. I was hoping to capture something special that evening and finally after 2 years of trying I managed to take photo of the lightning with a decent composition. Yayyy !!! Technical: This is one exposure f8, 5sec. 400 ISO (no image blending) and pretty much straight out of camera with minor adjustments in lightroom.
I adore Aboriginal art, the subjects and themes, the spirit-ethereal world combined with the wonders of nature, the earth, the sky, man one with nature, the color choice combinations, patterns and lines, the structure without losing the freedom of the creativity; it really is beautiful.
The Gove Peninsula in Australia’s Northern Territory is a focal point for Aboriginal art and culture in the 94,000 sq km expanse of Arnhem Land, a place where many indigenous people only met white men for the first time little more than 70 years ago.
