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.

Staying in New York, with the mercury rising, a scorching hot sun goes down over Gotham.

Rain-splattered foliage at the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.

Windswept beach at Coney Island. That sand was moving so fast it hurt when it hit you.

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

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Weather? What’s that? Here in Ireland we don’t have weather… we only have rain! Cold rain!! 🙄

      Haha, actually I think all the weather over here is fierce. It’s fierce windy, it’s fierce rainy, it’s fierce cold. And that one day a year when it’s fierce hot and the sun is splitting the stones. 🙂

    These are beautiful! I was awe struck by the dew drops. Each picture evoked a different emotion. Thanks for sharing.
