Craig Brix, Night Bushfire (April theme: "WOW FACTOR")
This photography was taken at a night camp on a multi-day hike approximately one hour north of Julia Creek in outback Queensland. It was a 10 minute exposure which enabled the camera to capture multiple lightning strikes and a fire that the lightning started. The fire only lasted a few minutes before the rain put it out. The orange in the clouds is from fire but almost appears to be a sunrise or sunset. No digital editing or enhancements applied.
