Week 275: Weather

Our theme this week is Weather, and we’d love to see how you can capture changing weather on camera. Perhaps you will photograph the movement of rain, and try photography techniques such as intentional camera movement, or long exposure. Maybe you will photograph dramatic cloudscapes as they pass overhead. You might decide to showcase a wildlife subject reacting to the weather; a fox enjoying some warmer weather, or a bird taking shelter from the rain. Perhaps there is even snow where you are, and you can photograph a frozen landscape. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or are new to the genre, the options for capturing new and interesting weather photos are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring shots you can create.

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Flowers – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Zoltan Dobany: ‘The photo was taken in an old pearl oak forest in the morning.’

This is a truly wonderful example of a flower portrait – the essence and spirit of the flower has been captured in a dynamic and engaging way to enhance the natural beauty of the subject. The use of bokeh is highly effective and creates a splendid backdrop to the central flower, positioned cleverly within the composition to allow room for the full breadth of its shape. Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
