The Chase Continues
21 January, 2012

Yesterday I headed out with fellow photographer and mate Adrian Wayte to chase the rest of the storm, he was ticked off because I'd tried to get him to come out with me to photograph the lightning but didn't make it. We decided to head north east and try to get in front of the storm as the most dramatic images are usually the front of the storm.. After covering quite a bit of ground we managed to find a nice hill directly in front of the storm, it...

Perth Lightning Storm 20th January
20 January, 2012

Last night we had one of the most active lightning storms I've ever seen in my life. Lightning was going off every half second at the most. I followed the storm from south of Perth out to the ocean and got some of the best photos I've ever taken of lightning. I also remembered to do some video.. I'll have that up shortly. Here are the photos: All images are copyright Paul Pichugin, not to be used for commercial use with out my...

Storm Chasing
19 January, 2012

I wasn't going to head out this afternoon... but when Adrian Wayte sent me a message saying he was heading out to get some photos, I just had to join him.. we travelled *all* over the country side, doing some location scouting for future trips, as well as getting some pretty decent photos. I'm very happy that I headed out as I got some images that I'm really happy with! Thanks for driving today Adrian, was an awesome trip! I'll have a...

Time Lapse over Mullalyup
27 December, 2011

Hey All, We headed down to Mullalyup, Western Australia to Bec's Grandpa's place (http://willowsrest.com), it's a lovely place set on 16 Acres of beautiful land. Mullalyup and the whole region is known for having very little light pollution at night, which makes it perfect for star gazing and astro-photography. I took the opportunity to set my camera up for an all night shoot last night. I was very lucky to not only get perfectly clear skies...

Sunset over York
22 December, 2011

On Saturday I headed out with my good mate Brock to do some exploring and take some photos.. we headed out through York and setup in someone's paddock for sunset. We did some shooting there and I managed to capture this 9 image panoramic: After the sunset we headed up towards Toodyay through Northam and ended up at an old ruin to do some star trail images. I experimented with a few different angles and I'm looking forward to going back with...
