About this book

A visual celebration of the diversity and unpredictability of the weather in all its forms - from the benign beauty of a clear sky to the explosive impact of lightning and hurricanes. It contains a collection of photographs, ranging from satellite images of developing fronts and global weather patterns, to ground-based photographs of cloud formations. It includes optical phenomena such as rainbows, sun pillars and aurora borealis, and breath-taking weather events such as lightning and tornadoes.
