Spring is finally here and you know what that means...storms!

Thought I'd get this thread started with this canola which is coming into peak in South Australia. Will try and make an effort to post once a week for spring, hopefully it's a good one.



And a recently processed image from early spring last year.

Was that storm part of the September outbreak that included several tornadoes?

Cheers guys! Would be awesome to have a regular thread going smile

Rsav - Nah this was a storm event about 3 weeks prior to the tornado outbreak. Did see a large funnel that day though!

Hell yeah STL! I'm pretty certain that would have been taken on the same day as my above image, some rather nice gusters around that day.

Blyth Plains shot from the foothills of the Clare Valley. The canola in the last week is really getting colourful in the ranges now, will have some more shots of it to come smile

Awesome stuff Eddy, I also saw the moon rise from a pretty cool spot but no camera unfortunately frown

Yes it is quite beautiful down here Waver Rider...I just wish our weather was interesting a little more often!

A high telephoto image from the other day. The range these turbines sit upon is about 6-700m asl, the clouds during cold events are sometimes low enough to obscure these ranges, as was the case this day at times. Got pretty lucky with the lighting making this moderate shower look quite awesome, you can see a turbine on the left through rain curtains.

Quite windy this day, over half the turbines had been deactivated.

Yesterday, I said to my wife Helen, "I'm thinking of putting this shot on the Weather Forum". Helen replied, "The picture tells the story of the depths of Winter." I then said, "I took this shot just after lunch today, this is a Spring image".

Snow falling on the ranges of the Murrumbidgee and Goodradigbee Rivers. Where the Northern spurs of the Australian Alps, the Southern Highlands and the Southwest Slopes collide ... known as the Bramina Wilderness. The App Temp on Mount Ginini, when I took the shot was -8.0C.




Around here one can only dream of the coming of Spring.

Skysthelimit,Eddy and Markus, thank you for your beautiful images.

Snow has fallen for the previous two days, with barely a break in the fall, on the Baldy Range, in the Northern Brindabella Ranges, NSW. Then at 10.30am this morning, 7th Sept, it stopped snowing.



Early morning 7th Sept, Mount Domain and Snowy Corner. Snowy Corner is the flat spur that runs off Mount Domain. Mount Gingera is on the far skyline. With the high winds at the moment, most of the snow has fallen off the tree canopies. There is a lot of snow below the trees. With more snow predicted for later today and this evening.



PS, The black smudge in the image above is a Wedge-tail Eagle. Flicker's loss of quality, compared to my originals is very disappointing, I'm finding.

Nice stuff Markus & WW

That was one thing I liked about Canberra when I worked there, was waking up to those snow topped mountains.

They look alright to me!!

I'm not sure of any other decent hosting sites?

Nice to see you out and about again Wassa and thanks for the pics. You reckon we get all the good weather but I'd swap you some for a flutter of snow. smile
Lovely beach shot again Eddy. Looks like we all had our eye on the full moon.
Thats a great view heading out ion that Blyth road Marcus. I got a real surprise the first time I drove my car on it. Beautiful sunset shot. I spotted the wind turbines and thought to myself how its getting harder to take a decent scenery shot without their intrusion. Hey perhaps you could try a high telephoto pic of the next full moon?
I've gotten into the habit of looking for a full moon rise/set. It often looks surreal and can be a challenge.
Yeah Wave Rider its a great place to live especially if you're a weather nerd.

Anyway my first pic shows the moon setting in the western sky. Taken from Hughes Gap looking out over Spencer Gulf. The second is the moonrise in the east some 11.5 hours later. The cloud cover ruined what might have been. frown

Nice stuff STL, I reckon you captured that moonrise well, it has character about the shot!! What was your focal length?
Here is another shot from last night, the westerly winds of late have made for some nice ripples on the sand, although the winds did make it hard to trace my tracks back to the car.

Nice beach shot Eddy. Glad you made it back to your car smile
Regarding my moonrise shot I used my zoom @ 300. I think its nice to see at least 2 thirds of the actual moon. Cloud is often good but too much wrecks everything frown

Eddy and Skysthelimit, please pass-on and share your lovely atmospheres.

When it snows here, it leaves as quickly as it falls. The predicted snow falls for the night of the 7/8th of Sept didn't happen. Overnight an unexpected warm minimum of 5.8C accompanied by rain and the snow was gone from the hills ... on all but the highest peaks, like Mount Bimberi and Gingera. If the roads are open, I'll do a walk in the mountains this coming Sunday and take my camera.

Mount Gingera mid afternoon, 8th Sept.




Eddie, someone told me that Smugmug is OK. I'm guessing their "OK" is possibly relative to their quality though. Any thoughts? I'll get Flickr sorted out, quickly, hopefully, and (again) hopefully lose that over-processed look, that I'm seeing. The image above looks small. I posted it, at 800 pixels high. Cheers Mate.

Thanks STL.

And WW I will check Smugmug out tonight and do a comparison to Flickr!

Anyway while I'm here, I may as well post a pic from last night. I went out to try and capture the Aurora and yep I was dreaming again, I will capture it one day!!
Anyway the moonrise and cloud made for some interesting skies, even managed to capture some crepuscular rays, although noise reduction killed most of the detail in this shot.
