These were all twisting into a centerpoint in the base. Looking up into these clouds it gives major vertical motion visuals almost looking more like a downward motion don't know if it was an illusion or what

I have noticed a few times a pocket in a shelf cloud that begins to show intense lifting motions causing some cinnamon swirls in the base etc..... Also if a shelf is intense enough there are times it can become inflow dominant again and even become tornadic!

There is an amazing storm in chaseday.com that shows a huge shelf turning back into a massive wall cloud in the archives..... really cool

SmokinJoe: what type of camera are you using? Can it take larger images? Those are great shots but unfortunately I can't tell much from them due to their very small size.

I'd set it so that you're sending at least 1000 pixel-wide images to the site. 1000-1200 wide is usually pretty good, without taking up massive space.

Most people run their PCs at between 1680-1920 wide, so a 1000px wide show will fill most of their screen. The forum is set up to not allow shots much larger than that anyway. (I think I have regular users set to about a 1200px wide maximum)

Cheers!
