lightning strikes calendar

A quarter of the year is nearly gone but Rotto Bloggo says this: chuck out your Audrey Hepburn/Far Side/labrador/AFL calendar and get one that has images like this instead.

Photographer Natalie Hiddlestone has a number of Rottnest pics in the calendar, which has raised $5000 for the Children's Leukaemia and Research Foundation.

This brilliant image was taken by Natalie as her lens was aimed out over Thomson Bay: as she took the pic lightning forked, and the result is a scene of amazing light.

No, it's not a painting. Natalie assures us she hasn't manipulated or touched up the image in any way.

Fancy one of these calendars? Leave a comment with your mailing address and we'll post you one gratis. Be quick! There aren't many.

Find out more about Natalie at her MySpace zone.

    Love to have a copy of the calendar. I am renowned for dragging unwilling workmates to Rotto for quokka watching on business trips to Perth.

    Can you send to Dial Before You Dig, PO Box 1927 Bondi Junction NSW 1355.

    Thanks in advance!
