STORM chaser photographer Yanni was in his element on Thursday, although the biggest decision was where would be the best vantage point.
Drawn to the darkness of wild windswept Cape Schanck, Yanni knew the possibilities of lightning and clouds creating an awe-inspiring silhouette and background for the both the lighthouse and cliff-clinging vegetation.
He was not disappointed.
Yanni has published a book, Beautiful Storm, which not only records many storms to have hit the Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip and Melbourne, but also acts a diary for storm-chasing travels.
The storm of Thursday 28 October shows there will always be no shortage of raw material for a follow-up.
