Video: Beautiful Helicopter Photo Shoot of Storm Petra Buffeting the French Coast

And while powerful winds and massive waves were tearing into the French coast, photographer Philip Plisson was in a helicopter capturing the action from a bird’s eye view. Read more…

Dramatic Wyoming Weather & Landscape Time-Lapse Complete with Meteor Shower

I don’t think we’ve referred to a time-lapse as “dramatic” before, but when it comes to photographer Nicolaus Wegner‘s most recent time-lapse creation, no other word fits quite as well.

Captured over 14 months in the Wyoming wilderness, beautiful motion landscape sequences are juxtaposed masterfully with weather that he calls ‘terrorific’ — terrifying, horrific and terrific all rolled into one — in Wegner’s Wyoming Wildscapes II. Read more…

Earlier today, we showed you a number of time-lapse videos of Winter Storm Nemo that were created by people who were stuck indoors due to the heavy snowfall. New York-based photographer Brian Maffitt was also stuck indoors and he also turned to photography, but instead of shooting time-lapse photos, he turned to a different technique: long-exposure light painting.

His technique is rather interesting: instead of a flashlight, Maffitt projected a movie onto the falling snow in order to light up the snowflakes.

Time-Lapse Videos Capture Winter Storm Nemo’s Massive Snowfall

People on the East Coast of the United States was battered this past week by heavy snowfall and hurricane-level winds thanks to Winter Storm Nemo. The multiple feet of snow recorded in many areas were among the highest totals recorded in history (one town in Connecticut saw 40 inches!).

The time-lapse above was created by YouTube user miges3111, who captured 22 hours of the storm from his home in Connecticut using a GoPro Hero.

Epic Panorama of Storm Clouds Looming Over New York City

New York City was battered by heavy storms yesterday, and photographer Ryan Brenizer managed to snap this ridiculously epic photograph (larger version here) of the ominous clouds hanging over the city (which looks more like Gotham city… or Mordor).

The 50 megapixel panorama was created using 23 photographs shot at 24mm. Brenizer says that the image wasn’t “Photoshopped to heck” — the scene actually looked like what’s seen in the photo. Needless to say, the photo has gone viral online. You can buy a print here.
