Storm over Tanami Desert catches eye of Territory photographer

”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.
