13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Storm approaching - Northern Australia

The Northern Territory, Australia, is famous for its imposing storms during the months of November and December. We had been chasing storms and lightning across the region in an attempt to get close to one passing over a road. Suddenly we found ourselves with the perfect opportunity but I only had minutes before the storm moved over. The two cars, one with the doors still open, illustrates the thrill of the chase and the need to act quickly when photographing the weather.
