I'm a sports fanatic, but this looks really cool...WACA with rain - a rarity that happened to many times this year

Ahh I have heard about Chop and his ability to produce lightning when he takes a shot! :P I think Greg said something about you just pointing into a storm at day time and click, "oh look guys got a lightning shot, fancy that!" :) Excellent shots Chop! :)

Actually Lert that is exactly what happened :shock:

I jumped out of the car to take a picture of the hail in the rain and noticed a lightning stike at the same time I took the photo. When I looked at the picture stored on the screen at the back of the camera immediately after the shot there was no lightning soI thought I had missed it. But later when I downloaded it to my computer I was shocked to actually see it there.

The photo below is 2 days later looking east to the trough. They were very big storms

Nice line of very thick cloud.

It is amazing when you see such a line that before you know it it is really close and the whole day starts to take on a winter feel.


I love that type of expectant feeling. Years ago before all the models were even around we also used to take on a "hmmmm how good is this cold front" feeling unlike now when we are pretty sure of what it will be like.

I remember in my times that the BOM looked at satellite photos mostly and predicted that far out. I also remember a lot of nowcasting and pastcasting (if that could be a word!!) i.e. that cold front actually did bring on very strong winds and heavey rain and not isolated showers as forecast

But it oipens up a whole area in that we can all practice being forecasters now using a little bit more advanced tools.

I agree Mike F. For me, it links back to one of Tim S's comments about "gut feeling" or intuition if you like. I'm just starting the journey of reading the models but I hope I will always use some intuition. This is a strange call for me being a maths teacher but I think perhaps a combination of both is good. Future models will be refined by people out in the field (who have experience also with the models) saying that the numbers alone didn't reflect fully that event. Why?

What camera's and lenses do you guys use? My missus absolutely loves photography and it's what she wants to do as a career but at the moment we're just trying to get things together.

Hey Janine! :) Nice camera you've gotten yourself, will be expecting some very nice nader shots from 'tornado alley' very soon! :)

Most of the good shots I get (which is very few lately!) are taken on my little Fuji F410, crappy little camera but it takes decent shots and they are digital so I can show em off to all of you guys :) I also use a SLR camera when there are really good photo ops but as I am too lazy to scan them these photos mainly stay in my draw at home, that and because I am only a very amatuer photographer I only have a handful of top quality ones. Though thats not the point to photography I do it becuase I enjoy it, if I get a great shot thats a bonus! :)

There are some very good photographers on here (and at the meetings) though that have a lot of knowledge and expertise, I wont name them (they know who there are :) ) but here are a couple of their websites:
http://www.electricskies.com.au
http://www.genesisfineart.com.au

and I know there others on here so feel free to post your URLs to your homepages because I cant remember them :oops: :)
