Surreal shortlisted photos from Weather Photographer of the Year 2017

Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 49: The Weather Photographer of the Year was organized by the Royal Meteorological Society (www.rmets.org) and the Royal Photographic Society (www.rps.org). The search for the 2017 competition began with a call for the best photographs depicting weather from around the world showing weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, rain, fog or snow, and the impact of weather on mankind, cities and the natural landscape. 

Almost 2,000 photographs were submitted from over 60 countries, creating a challenging task for the selectors to find the winners and the overall Weather Photographer of the Year 2017. All entries were judged anonymously and a shortlist drawn up before the final 48 images were chosen. The selectors were Liz Bentley: Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society, Matt Clark: Photo Editor of the RMetS Weather journal, Matt Taylor: BBC Weather Presenter, Michael Pritchard: Chief Executive of the Royal Photographic Society and photographer Sue Brown: Fellow of the RPS. The Weather Photographer of the Year exhibition will go on tour around the UK during 2017 and 2018. The winners will be announced on Sept. 20.
