Hey guys, i thought it would be a good idea if i started a photo/video link thread for weather events or severe weather events that happen in the tropical forums this year.

So pretty much if you get a big storm and you have some pictures you would like to share, or a video post it in here, so then its much easier for everyone to find, and much easier to share smile

Ill start. Heres Townsvilles severe thunderstorm footage from the other night. I recieved 102mm in under 2 hours, and went out driving around the city from 2-530am trying to get some footage of the flash flooding smile

From my chase along the Gregory Development Road from 10km Charters Towers side of the Harvey Range turn off to 25km(?)the Greenvale side of the turnoff...

Sunset, was really the best shot*hangs head in shame* storm wouldn't play the game with where it wanted to strike(needed a friggin chainsaw) and the lightning trigger loved firing at IC's that made the clouds glow.



Still stuck in the trees...shows the cloud formation atleast...sort of! grin



The best spot albeit distant, 25km(?) from HR turnoff looking toward Greenvale.

No chase but got close enough at the Ross River Damm for some decent shots.

The best before I got chased off the wall by the rain...



From the carpark (rain eased a little so I sacrificed my shirt for the camera)

Blownout



Best multi CG-



Rain stopped back on the wall-



Few others in my album for anyone interested including some branchy single CG's and an even better multiple that got fried.... cry

Good work tho, really like the colors in your lightning shots!
