    A hail storm just past over Hobart and I tried to get some shots.


    It started very gentle with a few drops of rain

    Then the hail started and I was out on my knees trying out some macro, getting soaked and eventually hammered

    It was getting a bit too heavy to stay out to shoot. The power went and the roof started to leak... This is a colleague holding some of the last bits of hail

    The sun came out again and it was magic

    Ray, not Oz
    The gums, when they get wet, always come to life visually. We thankfully avoided today's and yesterday's thunderstorms.

    Ah yes, the colours on wet gums are amazing. Quite unreal sometimes.

    Your 40-150 lens seems to be very sharp!! Great shots.

    Thanks! :smile:

    Yes, I'm very happy with my 40-150. What a bargain!
    I'm not as happy with my 12-50...the grating zoom, strange manual focus and I often don't get really sharp pictures. Even at sufficient speeds, there seem to be something that's off and it's not always me...
