October 28th, 2008

It’s funny how nature acts, sometimes presents the perfect opportunity to get most out of photographer’s skills. In particular, bad weather can provide the perfect opportunity to capture such wonderful shots. Shooting wind, lightning strikes, rain, tornados, waves, volcanos and stormy weather produces dramatic atmosphere and soft scenes as well.

Today we would like to share with you a round-up of some 30 truly brilliant photos and stunning pictures which are sure to have you marveling at the world around you.

1. Angry Nature Scenes

Rust and Surf

Angry Nature Scenes

This was taken back in February 2008, the last day that it rained a measurable amount in San Francisco! This was on the bay-side of the bridge, the Pacific Ocean is on the other side of the bridge to the left.

Wellie Weather

High tide and wind brought out the surfers out in force and fortunately there was a westerly wind so all the spray was being blown out to sea.

Ghost Rider In The Sky

Angry Nature Scenes

This was taken in near a place called Ry in Denmark

Lighting strikes the city

The light coming from the background is bratislava, right behind the border of austria.

Mount Etna lava flow

Angry Nature Scenes

Often lava doesn’t flow on the surface, but it flows in so called lava tubes. Lava on the surface of the flow cools down and builds a crust, while in the inner part, the lava stays hot and flows on quickly.

Lightning Over Water

Angry Nature Scenes

Magma Blast and Electric Lightning Bolt

Angry Nature Scenes

Rare and surreal static electric lightning flashes through a massive column of steam, sulfur dioxide, glass particles, ash, rock and instantly created black sand – all generated from a huge volume of molten lava dumping out of a single lava tube that carried it from magma chambers under the flanks of Mauna Loa’s Kilauea volcano further upslope on Island of Hawaii

Horizontal Twister

Angry Nature Scenes

A long and thin cloud which looked like a wet shirt being wringed out of water. As strange as that was there’s more to it, the cloud was rotating around it’s own axel and twisting even more and more.

Morning Rainstorm
