The tv-show on Discovery called The Stormchasers has been of great inspiration and books like
Cloudspotter's Guide and Jim reeds "Storm chaser".

Thunderstorms in Finland do not grow to the same size as those supercells in USA but
we had an exceptional number of heavy thunderstorms during summer 2010 (some of them classified as supercells).
Also numerous heat-releated records were broken across the country.

 

 

Had some problems filming at dusk with my Aiptek H5 and have not succeeded to capture
the best elements thunderstorms have to offer.
Next summer i will be using Sony DSC-HX1 and belive the video quality will improve.
