The Wagon Mound tornado started life as a fat wedgy funnel eventually morphing into a slender trunk and occasionally a fatter trunk. We watched it for almost 20 minutes dancing across the New Mexico high plains east of Wagon Mound. 9th May 2017

Quay NM yesterday. Great structure and some nice lightning too. Also I have a photo of what seems to be a tornado on my page, clearly a funnel but at that distance I could not confirm contact with the ground. More chasing today and tomorrow!!

This beautiful bolt came out of a Cell that Developed to the west of the Darling Downs, Qld, Aust last year. I chased from Warwick to Greenmount, near Toowoomba and this Produced some amazing structure and Lightning. When the gust front caught up with me it hit with raw power. The inflow was not very strong and the winds went from Easterly at around 15kph to over 100kph South_westerly as the outflow hit, in a matter of a few seconds. Just about put me on my Bum, hahahaha.

Mammatus Over Wheat Cartwright Manitoba Aug. 15/16 This guy moved in very quickly and then abruptly headed North. Was a Tornado Warned system. Minor damage from wind, hail North of us.

My first chasing experience in the USA. Day 1. The New Mexico Leviathan. Definitely saw a brief tornado at distance, but the structure on this guy was the winner. Today’s chase is underway. One very happy Aussie right here.
