This is an old favourite of mine. I witnessed this storm cell grow quickly from a little seed cloud.

Hi Willoughby,

I think I met you briefly as a Kansas supercell was advancing on us this year. I'm Brad and I was with Macca and two guys from Slovenia.

I absolutely love your shot of the two cells near Hill City from May 22 2007. What a fantastic shot! the lighting is amazing.
What a day that was - I was with Jimmy Deguara and Macca (amongst others) with huge mammatus, two supercells doing their thing without obstruction from rain or geography and then the 2nd producing a tornado from a jaw-dropping structured meso with great lighting.

I have posted a few shots of the same storms from a different angle here on page 3 of this thread (the first 4).

Is there anywhere I can see a larger version of your pic with the two supercells?

Also love the beaver tail smile I missed that storm as Jimmy and I had to drop off people in OKC but Macca got it. It was a beauty from all accounts. It brings back memories of June 2nd 2005 in Colorado. If only I had a decent camera back then! I posted a few others of June 2 2005 on page 3 of this thread too smile

that cloud swept over Victor from the S/E I have never seen a storm cell come from that direction in 20 yrs, from what I can remember It was quite a nice day and all of a sudden it came out of no-where, haven't seen a anything that looked the same since.

Hamlan those pics are amazing!

Dann's images of the Brokenback supercell do it for me. You can see the entire structure of the storm, from inflow through updraft to glimpses of the backsheared anvil. http://www.sydneystormchasers.com/node/584

Somehow, photos of shelf clouds & beaver tails aren't enough. I like to see the entire dynamics of the storm.

Agreed Craig. It's a superb shot. For me, it ranks with Dave Ellem's shot of the Corakai supercell and recent shots of the striated meso in SE Qld in October 08 as some of the best seen on this forum and taken in Australia.

Dann's storm came at the end of the great week long (longer in Victoria) December 04 outbreak for SE Australia, although I seem to recall Sydney missed out most days!

A year or so later Michael Thompson and I got this beauty on our first day out on TDU, between West Wyalong and Forbes.

Holey moley folks, there are some cracker photos in there. eek

I'm still pretty partial to my January 2006 supercell, which if not for pepsi-max/hillsrain/Tim, might have been missed altogether. wink It's in BoM lore now, which makes me pretty chuffed. laugh

Yep Craig, I reckon Dann's photos would have to be the winner so far. Truly the bestest and fiercest storm captured. Would have loved to have been there. cool

Well it is a shame that none of us up here were expecting to see storms like we did yesterday so I do not think many photos were taken of it but there was a storm to the south yesterday that would match almost any storm on this thread, apart from Dan's eek , in terms of structure. Just amazing and unexpected. Luckily I had a perfect view from cricket training but unfortunately that meant I had no camera. mad eek

I was there, well not exactly - that storm tracked virtually over the top of our house, the core & meso passed us very closely to the south. No pics worth posting really as they were only stills off my video camera.

I believe hail to 3cm fell not far from here but the BoM has a report in their significant weather section of 5cm hail at Cessnock.

I suggest everyone take a look at this link, in particular the structure of the Beloit Kansas storm on May 29 this year (taken by cdcollura). OMG! I missed out on being on the plains by 2 days frown

Hey Brad, yeah what a storm it was. It wasn't me that you met earlier this year in Kansas... those were the William brothers. We were down in Dallas opting out of that setup - what a mistake that turned out to be after reading and seeing the reports there! I think you guys passed us eastbound on the I-70 enroute to the target on May 22.

Here's a full size version of that shot from May 22 2007 you requested: smile
http://flickr.com/photos/unripegreenbanana/512684664/sizes/o/in/set-72157600671127478/

Yeah that shot from May 29 in Beloit KS is absolutely unreal. We were kicking ourselves for staying with the Kearney supercell for too long and not ditching them for the developing multicells coming off the CO/KS border.

Got this shot earlier in the day, 4PM in SW Nebraska...


That 2/6/05 Limon supercell would've been fun to chase. eek laugh
