Tell us the story behind your photo:
My sister and I walked the great ocean road surf coast track for our Silver adventurous journey. It took three days of independence, and this picture shows me in the middle of a thunder storm with incredibly close lighting. we were running to our accommodation for the night, being very close when the storm hit hard. Overall the journey was an amazing experience to develop my independence, navigation and motivational skills throughout the 40km walk and inspired me to continue hiking in as many unique places as possible, being such a great way to see the beauty of nature in Australia.
