I forgot that I had a panoramic shot, I forgot to put together 2 years ago, and put it together a couple of weeks ago. Just goes to show never delete your photos, lol. Lightning illuminating the Mammatus filled sky, at sunset near Acton, Texas.

It is the only official F5/EF5 to have hit the state of Louisiana since official tornado records began in 1950 and the only F5/EF5 tornado ever recorded in the month of February

'Light in the dark' This photo would have to be one of my favorite photos I have taken to date, it was taken from inside my car while taking shelter from the rain. I rigged up the tripod the best I could, guessed the settings and focus and pressed the shutter and this is the result, sometimes you get a lucky shot!  Canon 6D | Canon 24 - 105L | 24mm | ISO 100 | F8 | 30 sec | Sacred Heart Cathedral | Bendigo, Victoria Australia | 15.2.15

Picture taken on May 30th 2013 near Purcell - Oklahoma.We followed this supercell a long time and there was no tornado but the structures were amazing. We can see the strong boundary of the FFD and RFD on the right.

A magical moment from 2013 as this awesome shelf preceded a rather weak storm in the Florida Panhandle.
