( Around 6.00 - 6.30pm )
These photos have been divided up into separate stages. Click on photos to see full size. All are in the exact sequence they occurred and span only a 2 - 3 minute period. I missed the rope out stage on camera as I was changing film.
Wall cloud stage
I was that close that even at 35mm the zoom would only capture some of the rotating base. Click on any photo for larger shot.
Funnel emerging stage
Some closer shots at the most
A thin condensation funnel stretches almost halfway to ground in the first photo below.
After rope out ( changing film at time ) rear view of spectacular wall cloud.
Other shots, same system 20 -
30 mins later after it had moved over sea.
Colours not boosted during scan, this is how it really looked !
Last shots for the day. Another storm with beautiful anvil ( signs of shear )
