Travel theme: Weather

One thing you’re guaranteed to have no matter where you are in the world is weather. Good or bad, it will always give you something to talk about, complain about and photograph. So here are a few weather-centric travel shots I’ve taken in the past, starting off with the ever-romantic Central Park adorned with a dusting of snow.

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself. – Annie Leibovitz

We may achieve climate, but weather is thrust upon us. – O. Henry
