Weather has always been something that has fascinated me. I’m not quite sure what it is, but images of the weather are very difficult to mess up. There’s always a natural beauty to whatever is in the image. The best part is that there are a wide variety of shots that are created naturally for us, so it is very difficult to have two of the “same shot.” In my viewing I’ve found nobody that captures the weather better than Jim Reed.
Jim Reed has been photographing weather for 22 years and along the way has captured images of many memorable storms. It doesn’t matter if it was blizzards or even Hurricane Katrina, Reed was there. He has been a contributor to many well-known networks like Discovery Channel and National Geographic. Reed’s photos range between everything weather can create, especially the included three. His style is best summed up in the first photo, he is charging head-on torward the tornado. Lightning is also a very difficult thing to photograph, and he has captured lightning in a bottle (pun fully intended) twice. These photos show the variety of shapes, sizes, and colors that weather can come in. That to me makes it one of, if not the most spectacular subjects of photography.
