    Hi all :)

    Yesterday evening I decided to go for a walk in the countryside around here. There were some lovely clouds and CB cells around, especially at sunset. Heres some pics I took

    these first pics were before sunset

    1 this small cell with te sun behind it would eventually grow as it came closer and become beautifully back lit at sunset

    2

    3 view to the north or NNW

    4 a bit later the cell was creating a shadow that streched across the whole sky

    5

    6 that cell a bit later from a different position

    7

    8 looking NNE (apple trees in the foreground)

    11 :)

    You could have resized them - but I'll let you off because that is one great-looking cloud. You could have passed that off as a supercell if you told us you were in Kansas :)

    Hi there yes I suppose I should have resized them but I don't have anything to resize them with. I have been meaning to get somthing and will think about it when I next upload any pics

    I did think that it looked a bit like a supercell when I was taking the pics but I dont think It was though.

    Ive just noticed that the writing next to pic 6 should be next to pic 7 sorry about that
