I thought the sky looked weird...

  1. Apparently I passed very close to this on my way home last night

    Would certainly explain why the clouds were extremely dark, and yet it was also strangely calm.

  2. I guess that would have been when the wind change came through. It's a great shot. We get them more often than you'd think during wind changes, but the atmospheric conditions aren't suited to them becoming visible (temperature, relative humidity, etc.). I wonder if anabatic cooling produced by the hills has helped a bit?
  3. That is awesome! Did you take that photo on your phone?
  4. Not my photo I'm afraid, stole it from the local paper.
    Had I known the what was causing the weather I definitely would have grabbed my camera and gone chasing it. :)
