On my way up to Port Hedland on Sunday 23rd, took a couple of snaps approaching of one of the storms that went through the area. Glad I wasn't going up on Qantas as they had to divert as the storm stopped them (and nearly us) from getting in!
Unfortunately I didn't get anything with the lightning coming out of it but it did put on a pretty good show. Plenty of people were out during the evening watching too, it was quite entertaining.

Looks like a pretty decent supercell, if I remember correctly the BOM issued an STW for it.
