Wet Wet Wet, those photos are unbelievably insane!! Great photos mate grin

That second photo, it looks a remarkably like a tornado but of course I'm sure I'm wrong, either way it looks intense and dangerous! smile

Cheers guys. ASF, funny you should mention tornado because just 5 minutes later the storm actually spawned what appeared to be the development of a weak tornado. Below is the cropped image:



And below is the original:



And this was the Emerald Doppler radar at the time, with the storm located to the North-East of Clermont:



And the corresponding radar image:

Cheers Wet Wet Wet! smile

Hmmm yes that does look like a weak tornado - certainly can't be a dust devil as there is a cumulonimbus thunderstorm cloud right above it, dust devils occur in dry, sunny conditions - or maybe a gustnado? And all that dust being whipped up to the left of the tornado/gustnado in the second photo, is that due to downdraft/microburst wind squalls? smile

I like to celebrate the end of a season with a painting. It's a good way for me to sum up the season.

Spring here started-off being foggy, then it was intermittently smokey, ... but it was most always, very windy.

Times of Fog, Smoke and Wind ... acrylic on canvas.

Nicely done Wild Wassa! smile Yes Canberra's renowned for it's fogs, kinda sounds hard to believe it was windy there this past spring... but yes spring is a blustery season across Southern Australia, and it certainly was so here in Melbourne, a bit hair-raising and even dangerous at times, especially in October!! eek
