Commercial aircraft narrowly avoids being struck upon take-off Darwin Dec 30 2012
Image above was taken soon after I was doing investigative work on a pine tree that had been destroyed by lightning not far from where this photo was taken. Luckily for me I had heard the thunder and went after this monster!

Master of Photography A.I.P.P
This site is dedicated to the late Peter Jarver who lived in the Northern Territory for many years photographing our wonderful storms and landscapes. His inspiration and passion as a storm chaser encouraged me to pursue my own chasing and photography interests. I hope that my own photographs show the same passion, so please, enjoy .
I would appreciate it too if you checked
out a friend's storm chasing page. Andy Barber and Cam Smith do an awesome job with storm reports, stills and video . as well as accurate forecasting. They have some great shots and wonderful video.
