Photos June 03 First chase with a camera

A Line of cells were moving straight south and looked to intercept London dead on. I remember on radar it looked like a vertical skinny red snake with yellow edges. I originaly Intercepted the front left side of the line , but realized soon after I wanted to be on the front right. After going through a pea sized hail core I was met with a base with slight rotation heading south. the core was about to munch me so I didn't have much time. Looking west I could see the base, but to my east there was some kind of weird lowering. A tube coming out of the core, the becomes horizontal with a 90 degree angle on the front side.

Here is the view looking North before I turn Left on highbury road


Now under the front side a new core began to dump under a previously Lp base


Here I am making my way to the other side,looking east

Looking Southeast


Here is a crappy vid of the cell after getting out of the Hail core,
at the end you will see the weird thing I am talking about

Still don't know what to call this...



other pic of the cell



On the way back into town for work..... this updraft exploded on the backside of the core, had a wall cloud to match with some good lifting motions and a teeny bit of rotation



Here is the view form London's NE edge looking east , Nice anvil too.


A flank began to grow and become an updraft on the storms western edge, this thing had a base with some strong lifting motions going on. Wish I could have chased it....



Nice core over town
