Awesome shots! I just pointed my HDV camera out the window, but unfortunately my window just looks over a hill, some trees and a few houses.
No harbour bridge.
thanks for posting these photos are Brilliant! :)
Wow, those are really stunning. I was tempted to do the same -- take pictures of the storm, but a) I pretty much 'slept' through it and b) I couldn't find my camera tripod and the only good shots I would have gotten in my dark area would have required like, 10 second exposure.
Oh well. Next time. There has been a lot of it lately.
And by the way, cut to me, being totally jealous if that's the view off your balcony.
Great pics (and view)! I would have done the same if I hadn't been under my covers muttering fuck.. fuck.. fuck..
that's the view from your balcony?
utter bastard ;)

My god, that looks awesome!
I wish I wasn't such a wuss because it would have been awesome to sit outside and watch the storm last night.

amazing. may i save them?
Those are freakin' AWESOME!
I probably didn't really, but I could swear I saw that exact same bolt in the second shot from my bedroom window (in western sydney!) LOL...it lingered for so long it seemed...
I would've started shooting, but the storm started really late out my way and I needed some rest, not that I got any until it passed...
No, but it was disturbingly loud.
Yes, that's definitely a problem you've got there, sonny.
By the way, what were you shooting with?
Canon PowerShot Pro1, on a tripod. Decent lens but not an SLR.
(Basically I just set it up on automatic and held down the button. Out of about 150 shots, I got three with lightning in them.)

Very very cool shots. I loved the storm last night and watched it from my balcony also (though mine doesn't have the view that yours has!!)
They are both absolutely incredible, the second one is amazing!!!
i should credit you-i liked the first one so much i put it as my desktop background on my work computer, and recently i took a photo of my desk to show someone the pretty flowers i had on it and the background was visible in the shot :-P i can link to your flicker from mine (where the image is hosted) if you like?
Sure, just linking to the flickr page is fine. I'm not sure if you're even obliged to do that, but it's a nice gesture. :)
