We love photographing weather events. However, as you can imagine it isn’t the easiest photographic pursuit. Being as unpredictable as the weather so to speak. But, when we get a chance we always take it. After all, that is the only way to build our library of weather and cloud photos.

Of course, not all weather shots have to be as spectacular as the one above. Which is a good thing. Because to be honest, getting this shot was a tad risky. In fact, we might not try being this up close and persnel next time.

When we teach photography and we do as often as we can. We almost always tell our students the only photography secret we know is the old f8 and be there story. Or in other words, if you want to take good pictures you need to put yourself in front of interesting things. Details of Excitations Photo Adventures can be found here.

The picture above involved a fair smattering of good old fashioned luck. That is being in the right place at the right time. Then all we needed was a camera. The whole scene lasted probably no more than 30 seconds.

The above image is one of our favourite weather pictures. I can’t decide whether this cloud looks more like a giant hand coming down to squish everything below, ora massive vacuum-cleaner about to suck-up all in its path. As it turned out, it was actually more like an angry child. Swatting a heavy camera and tripod across the road. Fortunately there was only superficial damage and we kept shooting.
