Balls Head - Storm Watching - 7 December 2014

Lately Sydney has had a series of impressive afternoon thunderstorms. I decided to visit Balls Head near Waverton - as I thought this would give me a good vantage point for some photography. I missed the first storm (the ground was wet), but it looked like a second one was on the way according to the weather radar. During that storm I could shelter near my lookout under a sandstone overhang. The storm was fierce but brief. It looked like a third storm was coming, so while waiting I wondered around the headland a bit. Its surprising how many old tracks there are. The next storm was much fiercer - my refuge cave did drip a bit! After that storm I stayed around for the sunset.
