GALLERY: February weather across the Central West

A traveller from Scotland has captured a dramatic photograph of Sunday evening's (February 10) lightning storm in Dubbo. Duncan McLaren said his photograph was one of those "did I actually get that?" moments.  "I'm from Scotland doing some farm-work here, but just an amateur with a penchant for the dramatic, not a serious photographer (maybe one day...)," Mr McLaren said.

Taken on a mobile in Mitre Street on Saturday evening (February 9). Hoping others can appreciate it as much as I did because it is very rare to get a moment like this in such true form with no fancy lenses or filters. Photo: Kayley Cunynghame.
