A selection of convective weather images taken from my home area recently...

Approaching thundestorm during evening, view from my front door



Thunderstorm over Maghera with entire left section rotating rapidly for 10 min's, I thought it was going to spawn a funnel or better over the town. Got one big flash of i-c lightning and torrential rain which soaked me to the skin. I'm amazed by the amount of rotation events I've been seeing in my home area this year.



Mid level convection/nice cloud structure before sunset



Good structure



Dramatic skies
