A professional photographer captured a stunning lightning show and rainbow from inside a cave at Crescent Head, <span class="caps">NSW</span>, on December 5.

William Patino was on a photography trip down Australia’s east coast with his family when he realised a big storm was on its way.

“When I saw this storm cell approaching I could already envision the shot I was after and knew exactly where I needed to be. It’s not the first time I’ve been in a cave during a storm so I knew patience was the key.”

Patino said he waited almost an hour for the lightning to strike perfectly outside the entrance of the cave. “This, along with the rainbow, created one of the most memorable experiences I have had in nature.”
