”CLOUD porn” rolling in over the Tanami Desert is one of the most beautiful sights in the world, amateur photographer Glenn Smith says.

Mr Smith works on a mine site in the red centre, and snapped this photo on March 10 about 4pm while on a break. “It’s the Australian outback at its finest,” he said.

“It’s open, barren and flat — very isolated and very remote.”

Mr Smith is originally from Sydney and said the Territory’s flat, open landscapes made him pick up a camera when he moved. “It’s so open, so you have free range — there’s no buildings in the way,” he said.

“I’m in the middle of nowhere … Sydney has nothing on this.”

Mr Smith said the Territory’s beautiful nature kept him taking photos.

“I like capturing nature — the sunsets, the sunrises, the storms, the wildlife,” he said.

“Our country is the best.”

Darwin-based storm photographers will be happy to know this week will bring more wet weather to the capital.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a high chance of showers today “most likely in the afternoon and evening” and the chance of a thunderstorm.

Darwinites can expect possible showers and storms for the rest of the week, with a max of 33C or 32C every day until Saturday.

It will be a lot drier in Alice Springs, with BOM predicting zero chance of rain all week.

Alice can expect some hot weather, with a max of 39C Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
