Maghera, July 7th 2011, I quickly stopped at my house first to grab a few things and stole a very quick look at the radar which showed an active group of showers and young storms over central N. Ireland moving N with red echoes (indicating powerful precip cores) with c-g lightning sferics near Lough Neagh with the culprit storm moving N so things couldn't have been more perfect. We had just pulled out from our housing estate when we spotted another cell directly in front of us crossing the skyline to the E so we quickly pulled over to take a few images. In this image the cell is moving R to L, the anvil was big on this too and extended far above the frame, in fact, so high that I couldn't get it into the 18mm vertical frame, 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.
