Weather is perhaps the only thing that photographers have no control over when taking pictures. Regardless of all the advancements of camera technology – from the most expensive DSLRs to the latest GoPro camera – Mother Nature will always have the advantage.
When faced with bad weather, photographers have two options: retreat until the weather gets better or face the less than desirable weather. The Weather Channel’s annual “It’s Amazing Out There Photo Contest” honors those people who chose to brave the elements of Mother Nature and went on to capture amazing images relating to themes of weather, nature and adventure.
This year’s winners of the 2015 “It’s Amazing Out There Photo Contest” have just been announced. The second annual photo competition received over 40,000 submissions from around the globe. For your enjoyment, we’ve compiled 30 of the winning pictures. Check them out below!
