We drove through the Fermanagh lake lands and when located near Lusty Beg Island we intercepted our first and best cell of the day on April 23rd 2014 so we pulled onto a grass verge and got out to shoot the scene, Roisin was filming with the video camera while I was taking stills with the 10mm ultra wide angle lens. This was the northern most cell of the cluster which had formed below the border which was now moving in over the island and lake, it looked quite menacing visually with an elevated base and was moving straight towards us. A small but concentrated precip core was falling from the base with mottled shafts indicating the presence of hail stones within the core, the precip was dark however filtered beams of sunlight would break through from overhead turning the precip over the water into glowing ghostly beams which was a nice feature. Around this time the core was rapidly intensifying and had turned red on radar, 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.
