hi martin, was just standing outside there after reading the convective forecast you issued, torrential rain, big wind gusts, then a crazy bolt of lightning out of the blue, was like a set of spiders legs covering the sky, excellent stuff,,, pity i didnt have my camera at hand! hopefully theres more to come!

thanks very much for the advice guys! im looking to invest in some decent gear, only have a standard digital camera at the moment, this is only the beginning! yes the mountain does have some good views but gets plagued by heavy fog alot of the time,, its definately going to be my vantage point for the summer storms! Maybe organise some sort of meeting there if the forecast is impressive?

Hi folks,
            What a surprise i woke up to this morning, the lisburn/Belfast area had a lovely blanket of snow covering it and seeing the sun pop out and reflect off the snow was amazing!

Hi Martin,
               Unfortunately i wasnt so lucky down in lisburn, was quite overcast most of the day up until mid afternoon and white mountain had a thick layer of fog on top of it so couldnt make the trip up to there. Kept my eye out all afternoon but most of the decent convection was far in the distance so there was no oppurtunity to capure any nice images. Glad you got some decent views! hopefully there will be more photo oppurtunities soon!

Thanks very much! the cell in the second picture was huge, i had to stretch my head right back to be able to see the very top of it! Im thankful i got the great skies as this was my first proper session keeping watch with the camera, yes fingers crossed for tomorrow, i have been keeping tabs on the forecasts. I might take a trip up to white mountain just outside lisburn which has some great viewing spots over belfast and even on clear days u can see the mourne mountains from there! Good luck with the skies up your direction Martin!
