No TS's here  but plenty of stormy skies. The first photo was taken at 3.30pm and I finished my tour of the region back at Gloucester  at 6.30pm then saw the orange cell and went straight back out getting back home at 7.15pm. I was just arriving at that hill when I saw the rainbow and rushed to park up near it.

I know which will be Martin's favourite .

A great scenic set of convection/weather over the lovely countryside with nice contrasts and sporting a nice atmosphere for the viewer.  Images 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 and 12 stand out for me. I love the bow going into that single shower cloud and the big anvil in the distance with the solid back end!. England saw some stunning storm action that day, probably the best in years, wish I had been there!

Thanks each. Yes, it really was a great day  for many weather watchers and photographers and I was so pleased to get the shot of the rainbow with the shower cloud.

Danny - the 6th. and 7th. are at the same potation, about 9 miles away,I tend to go there when the skies are very busy in the west ,the other location gives a somewhat  limited view to the west whereas this location has that wonderful panorama stretching 50 miles to the Black Mountains in ,the Forest of Dean hills and the Malverns  (they're the northernmost ones and they feature in my Post front sunset photo)
