Grantville guster….

With the run of spring weather this week also came some spring thunderstorms, which was also a very welcome change. This particular day saw a number of ‘pulsey’ type storms in my area, of which I hope to find the time to process another image of one of them. This particular image was taken from a line of storms that pushed through near dark with the frontal passage/boundary and that had the most kick. Quite photogenic with this spectacular gustfront surging out across Westernport bay at great speeds left little time to walk/run to some compositions, so like with 99.9% of storm chasing type images – you make do with what nature dictates to you. Within literally 2 minutes, this location was pummeled with torrential rain and fierce windgusts.

  1. Great image Tony, those clouds are amazing!

    • thanks Ben – yeah it looked pretty good ! pity you get very little time in these situations though.. hoping for more mid week 🙂

  2. Wow, I love the clouds, they are massive, threatening, organic, aliiiive!

  3. Wow!


    Check out this site Tony, I am sure you have it anyway. anything with -5 or above is electrical storms.

    • hey Casey,
      Yeah BSCH is a great resource, I’ve known Ben for about 10-12yrs now I think. I’m not sure which forecast model/chart you are particularly referring to though ?

      cheers 🙂

  5. Like it Tony, with a storm front moving that fast stitching must have been fun! Or is it a single frame crop?

    • hey Tim,
      Yeah storms that day were moving at near 100km/h and coupled with the movement along and of the outflow boundary there… you need to work fast ! I guess 12+ years of stormchasing has trained me enough for this type of work 🙂

  6. Crackalaka mate!

  8. Hey Tony,
