For a few, it’s an hobby that would take far a bit much patience. Just one photographer waits for hours just to capture the amzaing photography of storm clouds breaking. Kris Dutson, 53, has spent ten years scouting out the ideal locations across Britain to capture the most astonishing atmospheric shots on his camera as rain falls.
He carries meteorological charts and a sun compass with him and will patiently wait for clouds to break before capturing the perfect shot. Kris, by Compton Valence, near Dorchester, Dorset, scours the countryside for the most beautiful and interesting scenes to shoot. He sometimes waits for months on end before returning to a particular spot at the right time of year to catch these astonishing images.
One of his incredible photos shows a perfectly-formed rainbow stretching across vivid green fields, glowing in front of a moody grey sky. Another captures billowing white cumulus clouds rising imposingly behind the deep green peaks of Colmer’s Hill, near Bridport, Dorset. Others show sinister grey clouds gathering above fields of barley, daisies and rape, while others capture the striking cloud formations above the Jurassic coastline.One striking image captures a full moon illuminating mist as it rolls over fields, and another shows a stunning panoramic view across Hardy country.
