20 Incredible Images of Weather around the World

By Lucy - 3 min read

From Brazil to Korea these images have been selected from around the world to show all extremes of weather and inspire you to go outside instead of running for cover.

Apparently Brits talk about the weather for six months of the year, so we want to see what all the fuss is about. The beauty of weather photography is that it’s all natural: dramatic light, powerful cloud formations and an unusual atmosphere can all make for really exciting imagery.

From Brazil to Korea these images have been selected from around the world to show all extremes of weather and inspire you to go outside instead of running for cover.

Here are five tips to help improve your weather photography:

1. After the storm – As exciting as photographing a storm can be, make sure you are patient. The lighting and movement in the sky afterward can make for a really interesting image.

2. Alternative shots – Photographing details of weather can be just as powerful as a landscape, so try to take a different perspective the next time it’s raining.

3. Lightning – You never know where lightning is going to strike, so your best bet is to keep a steady hand and try to get in as much sky as possible.

4. Include foreground – Large landscape images give a good overview of what’s happening around you, but it’s important to give some depth. Keep some of the foreground in the shot to give perspective.

5. Filters – Remember, filters are your friend. EyeEm gives you a whole range of effects that can really enhance your images. Brightness and contrast can bring out colors and details that will create a dramatic result.
