“The Sky Was Alight With A Fiery Sunset”

I was on board the Kimberley Quest, sailing the Kimberley at the very start of their season. I was told to expect late wet season storms and weather phenomenons. After a couple of days cruising with gorgeous blue skies I had put this out of my mind until a change came over the landscape and an electric vibe spread through the cabin.

I rushed outside to join my fellow travellers and within minutes the sky was alight with a fiery sunset accompanied by the longest and most brilliant lightening storm I had ever witnessed.

For hours we lay on the deck watching strike after strike and tasting salt on our lips, whipped up by the winds. Those with cameras captured what they could but one by one all cameras were packed away and we were silent, in the moment.
