Yesterday’s crazy storm

It isn’t often we get lightning and thunder here in Victoria. While I didn’t manage to get any pictures of the lightning yesterday, I did get get some great shots of a small front that came in behind the main storm yesterday at Willows Beach.

To give you an idea of just how fast this cloud was moving, this poorly-shot gif (I didn’t bring my tripod with me) shows the change in just one minute.

The wind was also pretty amazing. It was pretty still under the main storm cloud but once that low-lying cloud hit, the speed increased dramatically (to the point where I was glad I didn’t have my tripod with me).

Update: My brother (the pilot) tells me that this is called a roll cloud.
