Salve ragazzi,

I am posting some images from two storm chases in late August in Trieste gulf ;)

1) The first one was on the 24th August 2006, a spectacular nightime supercell over southern FVG exploded in outflow dominated high low-level shear environment ahead of an approaching convective complex from Veneto. I am sure you will remember that day :smoke

Sure I was out on chasing, here are the photos...some convective clouds structure from Carso in the afternoon...

...and overnight chase, I was mostly in the Sistiana and surrounding areas...

What was the most impressive that day, was a spectacular view over the supercell just north of Monfalcone ;el)) I was shocked when some lightning strikes flashed into higher levels and I noticed that amazing storm structure! Here are some details:

You can "feel" the rotation here on these two images:

One amazing strike shot directly into the centre of Monfalcone city ;-9.....

And some more later...well structured strike into the sea...

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/24_08_2006mk25.jpg

...and outstanding flashes of anvil crawlers all over the sky, I was of course directly under the mesoscale complex..

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/24_08_2006mk5.jpg

This was an amazing chase, more images can be found here: http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=search&type=full&search=chase24082006

2) The next day on the 25th August 2006 I of course slept just for few hours, went to work and a pretty quick great storm passed SW Slovenia in the morning. I took this shelf cloud image in Kozina...it had an explosive rotating covective structure, I've never seen such dynamics like those before!

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk42.jpg

In the late afternoon I went to a Socerb castle above the Trieste and took some pics of intense thunder-showers over the city...a great view into the rain-free base right of the main precipitation area...

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk43.jpg

There was an amazing moment, looks like someone in Muggia area ordered his own private sun light ;66))) Seriously, look at these two pics...

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk45.jpg

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk46.jpg

After this shower went over, I checked the radar and thinking its not over yet....just before the night the look towards the Slovenian coast tell me: "OMG, undulatus forms....its showtime!!" Such forms are a nice sign that things are geting organized again, shear was increasing and something is gonna happen over the gulf again!

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk51.jpg

I decided to go to the northern side of the gulf, parked in Aurisina and Sistiana for awhile when storms were already exploading few kms west of me...

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk16.jpg

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk22.jpg

Things started to move towards me, so it was moving towards SSE over Trieste...radar animation showed its going pretty slow and this was an opportunity. I fastly moved back to Socerb castle again when a look over the gulf shocked me! Slowly moving squall line towards the city and me, heaven on Earth!! ;-9..... ;-9.....

http://www.weather-photos.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/25_08_2006mk25.jpg

What can be more impressive at night than a big city full of lights with a slow moving storm squall line with lightning strikes over it? ;el))

The more it was closer, the more impressive it was with great strikes into the city peaks ;-9.....

I was covering the area with both cameras, Canon 30D and 300D, so it was a rare thing that could escape me in that night ;:175) There was an active time also towards the Capodistria with some close strikes...I felt electricity in the air and I did head crackling around me from time to time :smoke

Also one nice anvil crawler over my head just before the rain hit me and the show was over :11)

Nice pictures Marko and also Matteo.
You have a great passion for the lightnings, besides you are very good to take photos. You seem a professional photographer, is this your job? ;10)
I'd like to know you. I hope it at the next spring for the meeting in Friuli. :fischiet :ciauz1

Thanks, Roberto! Actually I am not a professional photographer, I just love taking pics for several years...no school, just my trigger fingers and eyes :sorriso1
I'd also like to meet others here, so hopefully we will all meet on the next meeting ;10)
