A wonderful weather memory from October 28th 2007, a friend called around to my home in Maghera for a chat, we sat in the car to take shelter from the very heavy rain and blustery winds due to the passage of a convective cold front. Just before sunset the sky cleared suddenly from the west and as the clouds yawned open the sun lit the underside of the cold front as it headed rapidly to the east where a row of cells with low topped anvils could be seen, under these anvils was a beautiful mammatus display which instantly turned into a wonderful orange and gold spectacle covering a large portion of the sky, the mammatus 'udders' where so low that it seemed we could have jumped into the air and touched them. We walked up the road to get images, my friend kindly stood in the frame for me to provide that human touch and a much needed foreground element which provided a sense of scale, I was more than happy with the result, taken with my old Fujifilm S6500 SD bridge camera, read the report for more information. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
