Your stormiest sky whilst out bobbing around

Took this today as a squall line passed through. The wind danced from every direction on the compass whilst it moved through. As luck would have it the heavens opened up just to my East and West but I stayed totally dry!!!! All I needed to do was open my arms out and I could of been Bruce Almighty......Click image for larger version

Yep its not often you get to see all of that in one picture

In my native habitat in the North West of Scotland its not uncommon due to the Mountains surrounding the coast .. you tend to get rapid variance when a low pressure system is dominant ..

edit


and thats why its the biggest problem with those who think its time for a 'nice' kyak or something

The first shot is heading from pilots cove across the bar looking toward Anglesey. The second is inside Abermenai heading up the strait, just before ty Calch looking towards Wales.

I do like those new ribquests! I assume you know them both based on the photos and will be out in your RC with them?.....

We went out earlier in the year just as we were buying the RC. I expect you will see more of them on the straits. Both are from Gods country a bit north of Wolverhampton!
