    This 10 minute storm at my location produced the full works of torrential rain, hail and a couple of flashes and crashes.

    The Falmouth Observatory has been a historical landmark for nigh on 150 years when it was one of seven built as part of the fledgling Meteorological Office. Very briefly The RCPS was approached by the Royal Society to establish a first-order observatory at Falmouth. The society was delighted to be accorded this honour and in late January 1867 a meteorological committee was set up to oversee the establishment of the observatory.66 After considering a number of existing sites, Balfour Stewart from the Kew Observatory eventually gave his approval to a parcel of land on Bowling Green Hill, high above the harbour.67 It was decided that a new building should be built, a tower that would be 'sufficiently high above the houses to be exposed to the winds without interruption', so that the anemometer should be kept free from eddies. Given its prominent position above the harbour it was also proposed that a time-ball be mounted on the tower, for the benefit of townsfolk and sailors, although this appears never to have been erected. A range of other stipulations were laid down concerning the size and height of rooms, the number and aspects of windows, the positioning of instruments and so on. The building of the tower was commenced on 2 September 1867 and completed by the beginning of December of that year. Mr Lovell Squire's appointment as the first observer was approved and the government began to provide the society with an annual grant of £250 to cover its operation. In July 1869, with an increase in the grant, Mr Kitto was appointed assistant observer to Squire. An assistant secretary was also appointed, partly paid for out of RCPS funds.

    Taken on Beverley Westwood on 5 July 2015. There was an approaching squall line made up of numerous cells stretched from NW to SE and there was lightning coming out of four of them that I could see. This cloud connected two cells, this is the northern most of the two.

    During the Jacobite Rising of 1715 Corgarff Castle was used as a rendezvous point towards the end of August by the Earl of Mar while marching from his ancestral home of Kildrummy Castle to Braemar Castle, where the Royal Standard was raised on the 6th of September. Following the Jacobites’ defeat, Corgarff was forfeited and the Government returned it to the Forbes family. Thirty one years later Corgarff Castle featured in the second Jacobite Rising when it was used as a weapons store by the Jacobites. On the 2nd of March 1746 the castle was raided by Government troops and the weapons and ammunition destroyed or taken away. After the Battle of Culloden the castle was bought from the Forbes of Skellater by the Government and used as an outpost of Braemar Castle. In 1748 it underwent numerous architectural changes to make it ready for its new life as a Government garrison. - See more at: http://www.stravaiging.com/history/castle/corgarff-castle#sthash.Z5uYjpDa.dpuf

    Much photographed stunted pine tree near the edge of the moor. Scots Pines aren't exactly native locally but will readily self seed - there were numerous seedlings in the heather and without periodic burning a scrubby woodland would develop on some areas. The estate had carefully cut a circular fire break around this well known tree,

    This is a macro urban image I photographed. It is aptly named "Storm Bringer" In reality, it is a derelict shed building of corrugated iron which had been set on fire - the image itself is actually in reality only around a 3cm in size (a minute piece of the building), photographed with a 60mm macro lens. As a photographer of mainly unusual subject matter (although I do photograph other things too!) I love to hunt for 'tiny' landscapes in larger pieces of decaying materials and visualise...this immediately struck me as a storm!
