This place is special to me as it has been visited by many generations of my family. My mother and her siblings would walk up here regularly to share a picnic and take in the stunning scene.

Saturday’s approaching storm was the perfect opportunity for me to climb the hill for a spectacular view. This shot was exposed for 30 seconds to capture the sheet lightning and I used my torch to light up the rocks and tree to add some additional drama.


  1. Hi Amber,
    I love the contrast of dark skies and the light on the rocks.
