Severe weather photos capture the power and force of nature. From towering thunderstorms and tornadoes to gorgeous lightning displays and cloud formations, these images provide a reminder of the raw power of the elements. They also give everyone a view of what is happening around West Michigan.

They can be both beautiful and terrifying, evoking a sense of wonder and respect for the world around us. Many photographers specialize in capturing these dramatic images, and we like highlighting their amazing work!

Photos of regular weather events may not be as dramatic or attention-grabbing as severe weather photos, but they can still be interesting and informative. These photos capture the beauty and unique perspectives of everyday weather--sunny days, cloudy skies, or gentle rains.
