About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Magnificent pictures tell the story of an unusual passion: storm chasing. Storm chasers are weather experts, photographers, film-makers and many others, who fell for the fascination of unusual experiences of nature. You will find these extreme weather pilgrims worldwide in places where thunder and lightning, hail and whirlwinds come together. The American Midwest is especially is often affected by severe weather; every year, in spring and summer, storm chasers from all over the world meet there in the Great Plains, to chase thunderstorms, document them and give reports. In addfition, chasing has become more popular in European regions that are often affected by thunderstorms.

Impressive close-up pictures show the enormous force and stunning beauty of extraordinary weather phenomenon. Subjects of the illustrated chapters range from the splendour of cloud shapes and sky colours to the fascination of lightning to the force of cloudburst and hailstorm. An extra chapter deals with deadly tornados.

The next part of the book, which is also generously illustrated, offers ample background information on storm chasing. An excerpt from a storm chaser diary takes the reader along to an exciting storm chase. Moreover, a severe weather expert describes how to prepare for a storm chase, and a severe weather photographer gives tips for perfect pictures. In addition, readers will find extensive information on the formation of thunderclouds, large hailstones and tornados in the USA. This part of the book is rounded off by tips for books, films and websites about the international storm chaser scene. Text in English and German.
