Wow what an eye feast.,Thanks guys'.

The structure and symmetry in that super cell is fabulous orebound. Things look quite still on that shot with the turbines. Is that the quiet before the downburst?

Stunning shots EDDY. I have seen some of your photos before and l am great admirer. Why do you choose these particular shots as favorite?

Thanks thunderman, definitely structure and colour in the first two, generally here structure along the coast can be easily obscured by low level cloud and the last one for the fact it looks like something that I will probably never get to see in real life, unless I win Lotto.

Here's one last one that I like due to the lovely sunset colors. This was in Kansas during the 2016 season.

Oh Yes. I can see why you like it.,I can only imagine what it would be like when you finally come across something like that.The adrenalin and sheer joy. And even more the anticipation of whether the camera did what you wanted it to do. The success in that shot is obvious.,The color scheme and artistry superb.
I notice you say Kansas 2016 . Do you go, ver to the US every year for the storm season.,And you say we .Are you part of a storm chasing team?

Thank you Thunderman.

Yes we spend 6 to 8 weeks each year in the States during the height of the spring storm season. There are in fact many Australians that head over each year.

The "team" thing exists more in the world of social media than in the real world I'm afraid. There are quite literally thousands of chasers out there all working to get the shots to make it to air each night and most of them that I know aren't really interested in what anyone else is doing, in fact most would run their best mate over to get the money shot! Very much an individual pursuit I'm afraid BigGrin

So is there money to be made to make it 'on to air'?, or is it just extreme sport?



I hope you post your conquests from time to time. I noted most storm chasers are on facebook but l hate that platform .It is always hard to navigate.

Why storm chasers left weather forums is beyond me? Yet they took many users/posters with them and killed the forums inadvertently l believe.

The storm chaser and their followers used to be the life blood of weather forums. So l will say thanks for posting your gems on here.

I remember my old Grandfather who grew up in rural Victoria always had weird sayings. One was "If you see the horses tails in the sky, it will rain the next day. I don't know if he was every correct though.

Anyway, I found this image on the web and the text did say that his old saying was mostly correct.

Once again Orebound.. Stunning photos just like you lightning images and also a big help when you say what cloud type it is.
Is this a job for you or a hobby? It looks a lot more fun than my boring office job!

Plus, this great diagram of their formation.

Very nice Delboy.

This is a similar one Delboy over Bracken Ridge as the seabreeze hit the storm front. Once the cloud receives the feeder band usually from the North East the storm front jacks up.
You well see them up Caboolture way once our storm season rebounds one day back to the good old days.
I am still sorting out my files and cataloging them. These are just on my Ipad so the quality was not so great after being transferred from a few devices.
