Cyclone Helen

There was a cyclone in the Top end of the Norther Territory last night. It was called Helen. It reached category 2 and we received some rough weather, gails and rain.

Thanks Leighton.
They're kind of only snap shots but hopefully I will learn how to make the most from my new hardware.

I'm just starting myself. The Canon EOS 400D is an easy camera to be lazy with because it does so much for you. It's a joy to work with.
