Nature's Most Dramatic MomentsBook - 2006
The earth's atmosphere is like a restless ocean of air surging and swirling around us. It can be tranquil or it can be violent, capable of unleashing tempests, hail and destruction. Humanity has always been fascinated with the weather, and has striven to understand why and how phenomena such as lightning, thunder and rainbows occur. Even today, scientists continue to search for answers, and artists seek to capture the awesome beauty of these events. Weather photography, in particular, has evolved into a highly specialised genre that generates amazing images of the natural world. Extreme Weather is a photographic exploration of the unique atmosphere of our planet - an environment that is at once turbulent and powerful, beautiful and fragile.
