Incredible rainbow shaft! Still trying to understand your location and how the weather comes to you. Does the Low advance over the Med and spin the weather up over the hills and around the mountains?

I promised to explain when i have time.
In the summer core storms are born in the mountains to the North, North East and East of Kalamata, due to thermal instability. When stream helps they come strait to my city.

In winter, most low pressure systems come from Italy, they pass Ionian Sea and hit Kalamata with high precipitation and winds.

So that mountain is E-SE of you? I'm guessing based on the solar panels on some of the neighboring buildings. Just trying to understand what's blowing the stuff your way.  :grin: Nice cumulous development.

I just saw the bird flying across the top of your very first photo in this series! Great thread and great shots of your volatile season so far.

Photos with rain shafts are always impressive. The mammatus on the left, the updraft in the middle and the arms pulled back into the real cell to follow is pretty incredible! There's a glimpse of the downburst to follow in the lower right corner. A very cool shot!  8-)
