Amazing photographs depicting weather from around the globe have been plucked from Weather Photographer of the Year 2016. More than 800 photographs were submitted to the first Weather Photographer of the Year competition, with winners across various categories announced last weekend at the Royal Meteorological Society’s Amateur Meteorologists’ Conference in Reading. The shortlisted images show extreme weather such as lightning, plus the impact of weather on humans, cities and the natural landscape.
