Sounds good to me too !

Do you turn your pictures from "down under" upside down for our convenience in viewing up on this side of the globe?:G

What storm? Anvil doesn't even cover whole sky... :lol:


Also roll cloud is visible in good storms.
Those look really nice when it comes towards you... ten years ago I experienced one really nice roll cloud and gust associated to it... now these last years when I've had digicam have been lousy thunderstorm years here while one stormschaser, well spotter, still sees roll clouds and small tornados annually.
1, 2


These are much better for seeing thunderstorm's full size...
"Modem friendly"
"Get a broadband"
Just scroll to center lower edge and recognising Cumulonimbus Incus clouds shouldn't be hard. I was direcly under that cloud which has very sharp bumb/roughness on top side of anvil... that Cb had "small" overshooting top. They even timed photo nicely inside few minutes of strongest downpour and downburst.


If you have memorized days of some past storms you could find quite many of those storms from here.
http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/realtime/?calendar

Sadly they don't have satellite photos from 2000... one thunderstorm just gave some 5 cm (2") ice bricks about ten kilometers from here.


But now what I can expect in next four months is more snow on top of 30cm already on ground so continue taking those photos... but stay away from under that cloud, you don't get good photos from there, only thing you can catch is wind gust of downburst to video.
And I got feeling that photo was taken at 38mm so you might want to consider getting wide converter, real wide angle is also very usefull for sunsets.

Thanks for your information regarding the storm that never was, we did however get 3 inches of rain in 15 minutes and it left 55.000 homes without power because of the 100km winds, blew trees down and dozens of homes lost their roof, we get these little puffs of wind just about every night at this time of the year, we have also been told to expect at least 5 Cyclones this year with catagory 4 or 5 being possible, we do need the rain but hope it doesnt flatten an entire city as it did to Darwin with Cyclone Tracy.
