'Tis the season for stormy weather, as those of us in the Pacific Northwest know all too well. Although we may gloomily regard the darkened skies and bemoan the ankle-deep leaves, overflowing gutters and waterlogged landscape left in the storm's aftermath, it is worth remembering that there is still beauty in those turbulent skies.
Not convinced? Check out the hypnotizing "Stormscapes" video below, created by Wyoming photographer Nicolaus Wegner.
Wegner also created a longer "Stormscapes 2" video that is equally as stunning. Check it out on his Vimeo page here.
For more of Nicolaus Wegner's work, be sure to check out his Light Alive Photography website. I spent quite a while browsing through his Storm Landscape Gallery - there are some unbelievable photos there!
