Photos of unusual weather wanted.
On Fri 22nd Feb, Evelyn Cusack, well known to MV users in the Republic as a leading weatherwoman is coming to talk at our meeting (with WAI) in the Lansdowne Hotel at 8pm. All are welcome.

What we would like is to give her some examples of weather for her to comment on and perhaps review records for. And we want to make it visual.

Now every day has weather however dull however what we are looking for are pictures that illustrate distinctive weather or conditions.

So if you have good picture of strongly shaped clouds say or temperature inversion (clouds at your feet ) or lightning in the distance or whatever please send them in to group@mountainviews.ie
The pictures need to be at least 1024 X 768 pixels and they must be time stamped or you need to send the date an time they were taken. Also essential is the location.

For example the details for the picture below are:

Location: west side of Lugnaquillia, Co Wicklow, looking south.
Time: 17/11/2002, 14:01:56 wintertime.
Question: what caused the inversion and the patterned higher clouds.

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy 9 hours ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...
