Bribie Island Storm

I was lucky enough to get in front of this storm last weekend, I ended up on Bribie Island north of Brisbane. When I got there this family had just put their canoe in the water probably planning on a nice afternoon on the water, they must have forgotten to check the weather before leaving home.  You can see them in the bottom right of the image wondering what do we do now. Not long after this image was taken I was running for cover the mother and kids were back in their car and the poor dad was frantically getting the canoe back on the roof of the car.

  3. why on earth would you even try to set off in a canoe with that looming down?? hahaha. don’t have to be a weather nut to see that one might be a lil wet. great shot though, and good for you they put the canoe in as it’s added a bit extra to an already fantastic scene

    • Thanks Stephen, it was funny to turn up and see them sitting there wondering what to do next.
