June 22, 2011 Storm Chase, Large Shelf in Middlesex, mini chaser convergence
 
This was a really nice chase and first one of the year too so I'm really happy !!!!!
Also possibly the largest unplanned chaser convergence while storm chasing in Ontario today haha :)


The chase started on the NE side of Middlesex I followed the line from there.

These shots are of the intercept and the shelf coming in, there was some rotation still on the end of a lowered portion along the shelf

I re positioned after this turning left on a small road, shortly after making the left turn and heading down maybe 500 yards Mark Robinson and his friend pull up and take footage at the corner I turned at

There was no rotation but some great upwards motion

After this I head back down the road to get back on the main road I was before to get ahead again , it's then I see Mark by chance for the first time ever, I stop to say a quick hello then head back onto the road.... I go someway and I go to turn left again.
Well who do you think is pulled over facing down the side I am about to drive? Dave Patrick, so I honk and wave though he has no Idea who I am and head down the road a short ways to take some pics and video, Shutter was at 1/8 because light was so low so the pics are a little more blurred than I would like

I then head back down to the main road and notice Dave P is gone so I drive down the road for a bit taking this shot along the way

then a couple minutes after I drove past Tom Stefenac, Dave Patrick and Mark Robinson so I had a good Idea, I got some gas then headed further down the road hoping they would all come and it payed off and I got them all in one pic

I was hoping it was them and it was

And here they are , Dave in front , Mark in the middle and Tom in the rear

I go a bit further down the road getting these shots along the way, there was some rotation in that small lowered portion
