Cloud catching in the Kimberley

kimberley-montgomery reef storm Sometimes I look at the clouds and knowing the science behind the saturated air, I still must wonder like a young child: Where are they made? And how does Mother Nature make them so effortlessly beautiful? The Kimberley in Western Australia in the wet season was like a secret gathering of cloud-creator gods. Every day provided us with new artful and beautiful creations and I present a few for you fellow cloud appreciators.

The first image is a great rain cloud at Montgomery reef. The following image are of clouds at the St. George Basin, masterfully painted onto the sky:

We sailed straight into this amazing storm at Prince Frederick Harbour (David, what is the story here, that is a strange name for a river!). My storm image is nothing compared to what it should be. My favourite is David’s version seen here. There is a reason why I missed out, Mark and Dave captured the epicness and claim they could not find me. Thanks to my fellow members of Epicness Inc for NOT getting me while the best storm of the whole trip was happening right in front of us. I was sitting right in the middle of the dining room having lunch, looking like my good self, no make-up or anything. My dear thanks to the awesome Bryony (boss-girl!) for alerting me and telling me to get up to the bow! No David, I shall not forget this anytime soon 🙂

  1. It’s a conspiracy Flemming. Heads must roll within Epicness Inc. Where was the communications officer?
    Great images mate. Love the first and last pics.
    Cheers
    Dave

  2. That first one looks like it’s raining from the eye of the cyclone! The Kimberley really put on a show for you True Northers didn’t she?

  3. Like the first one Flemming, a beauty! Prince Frederick Harbour is what the Hunter River flows into. Place seems to be a storm magnet for some reason!

  4. Stunning work Flem, gota love clouds and these are some freekin beauties! 🙂
    Absolutely love the first, just WOW. The intense rain is amazing. The second is wonderful too. Quite diferent to Dave’s version of what I’d say is the same clouds. They are some wonderful formations. The 3rd doesn’t do as much for me- I think due to seeing Davo’s version to be honest lol. but the 4th has merit too. Got that new Flem processing look to it and it works for me with this one 😀
