Beautiful little gust front! Have the waterproof camera doing a time lapse and the main cell is just about to hit. Hope someone can save the radar loop! :)

Well that was fun! Right smack bang in the eye of the red cell near Pearce. There will be flash flooding un Perth for sure it absolutely dumped. A few rolls but no flangs.

:) thanks, got some great photos and video, am home now and will start processing them immediately, but with over 10Gb of footage, it will take a while just to pull off all the cameras!!

Did anyone get images of that amazing roll cloud ahead of the western flank of that storm? Truly incredible.
We missed getting it on film :(

I got it as it was developing, in fact I got a timelapse of the whole event. It wasnt fully developed by the time it went overhead where I was, but it was well on its way ... I cant wait to see the footage either!

Wow. Only looking at on an iPhone (power still out and iPad flat), but they look pretty neat! Well done.

Great EOS, but let me be the first to jump on you - it's the radar sequence, not a satellite loop :-) Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Here's a pic from the substation fire, possibly caused by lightning:
