Photo to be part of The Sky News Weather Channel 2015 Calendar

Last week I received some good news after entering The Sky News Weather Channel Calendar competition – I made it through to the top 12 and will be featured in the month of November (the month when the particular photo was captured and every Queensland storm chasers favourite month!).

The 12 images to be featured in the 2015 Calendar are below. My entry is third row down on the left and was taken while chasing on the Western Daarling Downs on November 23rd last year. The winning photo, which will be featured on the cover, was photogrpahed by Kylie Gee and is second row on the right –

November – A month to remember!

For a storm enthusiast, November was like Christmas as a child. For more than a week as an upper trough lingered overhead, there was storms within the SE Queensland region. And not just garden variety storms either. Across the month the region saw some spectacular supercell structure, very large hail, even waterspouts off the coast and tornadoes in NE NSW. To top this off, we were treated to one more round of severe weather over the weekend over 23rd-24th as the month rounded out. It truly was a month to remember!

Although I didn’t get out and chase as much as I would have liked due to work commitments, I did manage to plant myself in front of a few storms. Here’s a few of my favourite shots I gathered from the November to remember…
