AS most of us were stirred from sleep by the intense thunderstorm and torrential rain and hail overnight, the irrepressible former news photographer ANDREW CAMPBELL couldn’t let old habits die.
He was up, out and in the thick of things shooting these brilliant photos of thunderbolts and lightning. Campbell is a masterful chronicler of Nature’s ferment as it manifests in Canberra and it always a pleasure to publish his work. They don’t make snappers like him any more.
"A prickly, feisty person and a fine journalist who was never afraid to speak truth to power and call things as she saw them." Peer praise doesn't get much better as journalists remember a special writer. It's "Seven Days" with IAN MEIKLE.
