Dear all

Here the report from Modanville on 30th December 2008.

It was a great view up there at my dad's place and i was by myself experiening a scary moment. This large hail shaft was almost creeped towards us having my car outside (no garage!) untouched!

























Above in photos there a lightning bolt i took. This is only one daytime cg ever i took before 3pm which the earliest i had! In the backend of this cell i saw lot of lightning strikes in seperated cumulus cloud which is not part of the storm.......pretty creepy aye!? I was tackling to get a photo of that but pretty difficult.

Amazing pictures.
Do you guys use professional equipment. My pictures usually stink!

I have a basic Fiji SLR digital camera with 10.1 mega-pixels. It have plenty options with shutter speed, contrast and colour format. It is very useful.
