One of the awesome things about a period of heavy winter rain, can be the break in the sky just after it's finished. It also helps having a driver that will pull the car over safely on a busy highway, while you clamber out into a very fresh wind to try and capture the moment, before it evaporates. Dark shadows, lowering clouds, cascading light... skies, the light, the colours, all so different at this time of year.

This scene is from the highway between Ballarat and The Grampians, country Victoria, as we were trying to get to a Grampian's campsite before it was completely dark - or, raining again!
