The changing patterns of weather elements are great subjects for photography because they reveal the splendor of nature in a most unpredictable way. Extreme weather conditions provide the best settings for weather photography, but it can be dangerous for photographers who have to brave the storms and other natural hazards to capture images of nature in its grandest form. Still, many photographers find the risk worth taking, and this is quite understandable when people get the chance to see their awe-inspiring work.
