Title: Gloucester Convection-Tuesday
Post by: JohnC on August 18, 2010, 10:37:36 pm
I had problems with Tinypic yesterday but today it's working ok. The last two were taken today and if you look closely at the second to last you'll see a sort of wall cloud with a scud inflow (I think)

Hi John, thanks for posting these great images. I love the contrast between the dark storm clouds and the countryside below, also great job getting those large billowing updraughts/cells exploding with such fine detail. Looks like an inflow feature, perhaps wall cloud in the 2nd last image. Without doubt you had two days of good chasing there  :)

Great set of photos again John, I agree with Martin on the beautiful contrast between countryside and clouds. # 4 catches my eye with the closeup of convection!

These are excellent John, you've captured some really vigorous convection there-love no.4. I bet those towers were just flying up at the time.  I was hoping to see something like this yesterday. lovely views across the countryside in the last few.  :)

Thanks for nice coments.It was a great day for convection and  I tried another location on Wednesday but  on the way back home saw pilleus across a Cb and went back to Tuesday's location and it's a better all round view and higher,I actually look down on the other hill which is 2 miles away so I'll stick with this one and there's a corn field there too for contrast and the car is right by me so all in all the perfect place and only 1 mile away-not much chasing there Martin Lol..only 1 mile .
