Yes it has been spring for only 30 minutes but I am looking forward to the warmth returning to Victoria soon so much I have decided to start a new thread.

The following is around 1600 shots taken in the spring of the northern hemisphere; Tornado Ally grin taken towards the end of May on a Storm Chasing tour. The trip was amazing and definitely worth it for the weather buff. Storms everyday for the 7 day tour and I saw 4 tornadoes and multiple funnels

Nice video Dawoodman. I can imagine those sort of trips becoming addictive and wanting to go back again and again .. smile


and now for something completely different. As the days lengthen and a little warmth creeps in i still find myself chasing early morning fog and it seems a meandering road that binds the picture together. Love the changing colours as the sun rises smile

Thanks Doug. I do keep an eye out for those red dirt tracks and try to incorporate them into my pics if possible. The down side is they are clay and I've gotten bogged on more occasions than I care to remember frown

This one was taken at the beginning of Sept just after the figs had lost all their leaves and were starting to bud again.

Nice as usual STL and nice one also BG.
Obligatory Tassie spring shot from my short trip:



and another after a spring snowshower had cleared late afternoon. Terrible shot, but the only one I took with the snow dusted through the trees.:

Snow & forest a very tough subject for camera meters. smile

That looks like the edge of the trout dam just outside "The Lodge".

Vantage Point Hunting..

It's been a very slow start towards the NT's build-up this year with still no proper inland storms in sight, at least for the next week or two.

In the meantime I've been exploring around Katherine and found some hidden gems seldom known to the public.

Some great lokouts for storms with views towards Florina.
The countryside is a mix of open woodland and mesas.

The soft spinifex and sanppy gums over the hillsides were like a small taste of "Pilbara". Quite amazing!

Our camp along the lower reaches of the King River. smile
Great fishing but beware of large mud Geckoes. lol

I'll be frequenting these places on future K-Town Chases. smile

thanks for sharing your pics Brett, Ronfishes and Jacci. Yeah Jacci its good to find those vantage points and be prepared for when you'll need them. I'm disappointed that up here in the township of Crystal Brook, the've just recently erected a big communications tower right in my line of vision. On top of that I.ve just discovered another wonderful area to my N N/W is about to get a facelift with over 100 wind turbines to take up residence frown

Anyhow we had a ripper storm go through here last sat evening. I was too late to catch any lightning though my grandson and I saw plenty. I just got my tripod al set up and down came the rain. Afterwards we had fun taking rainbow or mammatus pics. The sunset was great, providing lots of colour. There were some excellent shots taken by others of mammatus cloud.
Heres some of what I saw. We had to wait half an hour for the sun to set and the cloud was by now moving away frown

Great photos all. Sorry a little late with posting my spring weather images.

This one is taken from about 10km west of Berrima in the Southern Highlands of NSW. 28th Sept



This is North Wollongong on Oct 5th which was one of the first summer-like days for the season.



And this one was from Bundeena with a breezy NEer, but this west-facing bay was protected from it.
