    Wow, I am still shocked by a lot of these. They are just incredible. I would love to know the locations of some of these, especially the ice storm photos. Where ever that is, I don’t think I want to live there. Nature can create some pretty incredible phenomenons. We just have to roll with the punches. Thanks

      All of these pictures are real. Its crazy how much danger someone will put themself in to get the shot. Check out the video of Jim Reed running up to the tornado. Crazy stuff.

    Wow! This photo is very impressive! I live in South Korea has four seasons. South Korea looks so very beautiful. But this picture is seen as a kind of a disaster. I have not seen it once the weather is one of the ocean.

    Great post thanks for sharing. Congratulations to the photographers, for these great shots! Storm chasers, please be careful and mindful of the danger out there; we can live without the spectacular shots but, not without YOU. =)

    OMW!! those lightning images are absolutely stunning! Especially the blue & purple sky with the trucks, from “extreme instability” – that’s the most beautiful lightning shot I’ve ever seen!!

    I followed the link through to the site, but where can I find that exact image?

    I’m a newbie to photography and some of these have blown my mind. AWESOME, but I now realize I have a lot to learn.

    i’m feeling so lucky and i think the nature likes me so much.the pictures are incredible and amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. says

    awesome and very scare selection there.
    Ice storm pics reminded me time when I tried to get my car out or similar weather conditions, luckily less icy though.

  11. says

    Fantastic composition, though some (if not most) look they spent much time in post-production (strips the “rawness”, imho).

    Nevertheless, all are smashing photos in my book!

    amazing shots! talk about being at the right place, at the right time! just incredible!!!

  13. Becki says

    Being from Florida I have never even had any concept of an ice storm – that is just crazy. How/what causes that, is it ice being blown in or just rain freezing on stuff?? Very curious since we don’t even get snow.

    PS as everyone has said, the tornado and thundarstorm photos are mesmerising.

  14. Brian says

    Awesome pics, I love them all. Gotta have alot of guts to do what you people do. Thank you and God speed my friends

  15. Andy says

    Not to be too picky, but those pictures of “ice storms” are not really so. They are just pictures of frozen lake spray. But all of these pictures are great.
