16 Winning Entries of the Weather Photographer of the Year Contest That Are Just Spectacular
9Shortlist Entry: The Winter Garden, Elena Belozorova
Have you seen anything more beautiful than this on a winter’s day? In her own words photographer, Elena Belozorova said “This year I witnessed an amazing weather phenomenon – a white (or foggy) rainbow. I have already seen such a miracle in Karelia, but never in winter. At night the garden was shrouded in fog. All the apple trees were covered with lush frost. As the sun rose, a giant arc of light flashed over the garden. It lasted a few hours, letting me capture it in all its glory.”
10Shortlist Entry: The Tempest, Dan Portch
This is a fantastic photo showcasing the fury of the sea during the ferocity of Storm Erik captured by Dan Portch in New Haven UK. This is almost a winner in itself because of the precise moment capturing the power and surge of the wave formations.
11Shortlist Entry: The Supercell, Dennis Oswall
Storms can be ferocious but the irony is that there is also a sense of beauty in the awe and ferocity of the scene it can create and this supercell has been perfectly captured by Dennis Oswall in Southwestern Oklahoma.
12Shortlist Entry: Apocalyptic, Kevin Juberg
This was another brilliant entry by Kevin Juberg who captured the fury off in full panoramic view of one of the worst haboobs on record in Arizona USA. Haboobs are intense and ferocious sand storms that occur in desert regions throughout the world.
