Storm chase 25th July
July 25th and an extensive thunderstorm outbreak gripped N.Ireland and numerous storms were ongoing at the same time. I met up with Martin McKenna and together we witnessed close lightning, shelf clouds, intense rain cores, rotation and thunder that rocked my car - what a day. Other areas reported flash flooding and funnel clouds. Heres a C-G bolt that hit the ground as we watched the storm outside Cloughmills.

First video from new Drone!
I have recently aquired a phantom 3 professional drone. This is a great piece of kit which can record video up to 4k quality. I have had a few training flights and then last weekend headed up to the Gortin lakes. This is a stunning area at the foothills of the Sperrins and i got some nice light on the morning of the flight, enjoy!
