What Natural Phenomenon do you like capturing in photos or film?

I would have to say capturing a lightning strike on a photo. There's always do much intensity on such photos. Whenever I hear distant thunder, I would always try to get a clear shot of a lightnings strike.  Once I got the opportunity to capture a crooked lighting or forked lighting and it was terribly close by too.

Haven't tried taking photos of natural phenomenon but I would definitely wish to witness and take photos of the aurora borealis. I think it feels so magical being able to see it as well as capture it on photo. But for now, maybe I should practice taking photos of rainbows first.

Me too, I would love to take a photo of aurora borealis. It's a very interesting subject to capture because it looks so magical. However, it is somewhat impossible for me to take a photo of it because it's too far away from my country. I guess I should also focus on practicing rainbows first and save money to travel to Norway.

This is sooo me! I would love to take a pic of aurora borealis too, but based on the fact that I have to travel close to the artic to see them, and I live in a tropical country, that will have to wait. Also, I really want to take a picture of snow, I'm in the middle of the tropic, so my chances to see snow are like if there was a miracle. I would love to take a pic of myself doing snow angels on the floor haha.

Yeah, that would be nice. Even when i was just a kid, i was fascinated with aurora borealis. Seeing it personally would be memorable. Taking picture of it, is a dream come true.

I think that it is really a sight to see and is really worth saving and capturing memories. The Aurora Borealis is one of those phenomenons that I would like to personally see and capture on film. Living in a tropical country, I guess my chances in seeing the northern lights is close to never.

ballyhara

Totally feel you here. I've been born and raised in a tropical country, so aurora borealis and snow phenomenon are completely out of our range. I can certainly have the chance to check on snow, because there are really high mountains where eventually you can have some, but obviously not the way you see it on TV or movies. But if we are talking about aurora borealis, let's face it, that means traveling to Artic places, which is like close to maybe next life haha.

I have to agree with you on that The Northern Lights are one of nature's most majestic and mysterious phenomenon. The Vikings and Norsemen even thought that it was the "Veil of the Gods" a gateway to Valhalla or Heaven to us folks. It was only in the 19th century that scientists concluded that it was an electro magnetic phenomenon caused by the earth's magnetic field.

Auroras are nice to look at and I used to have an HD photo as a wallpaper. Unfortunately, there aren't any auroras here in my country and I've only seen them in movies and pictures. I guess auroras can be seen only in certain areas and areas where there aren't that much pollution.

Looks like all who wishes to see the aurora are from a tropical country. I wonder what people who are used to see these lights still feel. Do they still feel that it is magical or it is just a regular ray of light?

NesMarcos

I feel exactly the way you do. As I read the comments, mostly commentators from tropical countries wish to see or capture the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis and even snow. I am also from a tropical country and I felt really amazed seeing the Northen Lights in pictures and videos. This is such a wonderful scenery that needed to be captured by our lenses.

I agree with you. I like the magical and colorful display of lights from aurora borealis. Aside from watching them, taking a picture or video is the best thing to do. However, the appearance of aurora borealis is hard to predict and places to see are also limited.

Aurora borealis is a must see. I only see it on pictures pictures and it look so amazing. Going there personally would be nice but I can't find any circumstances for me to be there. Except if I will have a budget or someone invite me then I will definitely go.

I would like to film an earthquake if possible. The problem is you don't know when it will take place. I have seen shocking videos before on television. That means its really possible to capture or film an earthquake.

I think all you have to do is to set up a video camera everyday. Just like the seismologist they have set up their apparatus to measure the strength of the earthquake in the Richter scales so you must have a set up to capture the shaking of the building. This is now possible because of the CCTV.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jeffreyjose48

Yes! I agree with you. Its also difficult for me to go to places where there is aurora borealis. Taking pictures of rainbow is manageable. You just have to get the right timing. Usually rainbow appears just after the rain.

There is rain now here in our place. I would like to capture in photo right now the rain. Its a good timing to take pictures of it since its raining down here in our place. There is also thunder and lightning. Thank God for his protection over us.

A meteor shower can also be a good subject but you really need good equipment to shoot it. But I do think it's unique and few people can do it. That makes the photos highly sought after.

Tornadoes are great in pictures but are very dangerous. It is one of the natural phenomena that you can actually capture, There are few like lightnings and tsunami.

Barida

I wouldn't want to risk my life trying to captured dangerous beings unless it is a situation where I have been trained and ready to take those pictures. I have heard of some photographers that were badly when they went to some locations to capture wild animals.

RhealaineS

I have to agree with you. On my case, i would love to take such photos but I'm afraid that something might happen to me. I mean lightning is really scary. Whenever lightning strikes, we always turn off and unplug our television to make sure it won't be affected or broken. That's how scary lightning is.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ballyhara

Oh Tornadoes... another great one. I know it is unbelievably risky, but I would like to take an awesome pic of one. I know that it would require to get an specific training on Tornadoes, and have some physical and mental preparation, or at least going there to catch one with the proper team, otherwise you won't be able to tell the story. But anyway, at least for me, it would worth the hard work, because not everyday you can say you took an amazing pic of a Tornado.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

You must be brave for being interested in taking a picture of a tornado. This is very dangerous and you might get hurt by doing this. But I saw a picture on google that went viral that shows a man and a tornado behind him. A man nonchalantly mowing his lawn as the twister apparently bears down on him. It looks much closer if you look in the photo, but it was really far away, Here is the link to see the picture https://www.theguardian.com/world/shortcuts/2017/jun/05/how-close-can-you-get-to-a-tornado

Well, I'm kind of an adrenaline junkie, but I'm also a cautious one. Is not like I'm going to run straight to the Tornado, arms wide open on a Titanic style hahaha. That picture is insane, the guy is actually completely relaxed, like in a Sunday morning, mowing his lawn, and the Tornado is coming right to him. Believe me, I'm not that level of brave/silly.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

superlicca

You are right. The guy in the picture is so relaxed. It says that the tornado looks near but the truth is it is very far from him. But it is scary due to the possibility that the tornado goes to his direction.

Whaaaa... I think it is quite hard to capture those things up close and quite dangerous actually. But, I have to agree that capturing those things on film could really capture anyone's attention.

I've been trying my damndest to finally capture lightning on camera, but it just hasn't worked out for me. Not to brag about it, but I don't exactly lack much in the skills department, so I'm starting to feel like it just comes down to luck and timing. We had a massive thunderstorm here the other week, and I tried to capture some lightning but I didn't get the results I desired.

At one point the storm got too close for comfort so I just shut down the project, because I was basically standing on my roof with thunder clouds on top of me. I probably had the best odds I'd ever get at that point, but I wasn't about to become a lightning rod for a photo opportunity, haha.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

vinaya

I have also tried capturing lightning on camera, however, I have never succeeded. Timing is very important if you want to capture natural phenomena like lighting. In order to capture lightning on camera, you need a camera that takes good photos in low light setting.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

DenisP

Capturing some degree of lightning has been moderately easy in the daytime for me, simply because I can set my camera to a very fast shutter speed, continuous shooting, and basically just keep my finger on the shutter release until I happen to get an image. Still, I haven't gotten results that I could be proud of. The real challenge for me has been nighttime lightning, because you could in theory just turn the exposure down immensely and keep the shutter open in hopes that it will pick up a lightning strike, but many times the lightning itself occurs too early, resulting in an underexposed image. I could also up the ISO and do the daytime method, but that results in more digital noise which I hate. I try not to shoot in more than ISO 800.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

vinaya

Lightning is an amazing phenomenon. It appears and disappears within a snap of a finger. When lightning appears, there will be a series. You can take continuous shots to capture lightning and you can get at least one good shot. You will also have to concentrate on a couple of issues, such as camera setting, angle light condition etc.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

jeffreyjose48

I think lightning is possible to be captured. Here in the Philippines we always experience thunderstorms and lightning. When I was a kid, I am so afraid of lightning. I cover myself with blanket. I don't want to see lightning. We also cover our mirror with blanket.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Kakashi2020

Where there's thunder there's always lightning and the best way to shoot it is to plant your camera and just take successive shots, set your camera settings into 8 or 16 shots this would raise your chances of getting a lightning photo.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ballyhara

And that's true. When I was in college I took some photography lessons, and our teacher was a senior guy, full of tricks, and he used to do successive shots for any fast capture. For example, while people is jumping, jet planes flying, kids on jumping cord, obviously that also applies to natural phenomenons like lightning.

The beach is a good place for you to take your pictures as it stands for nature. I enjoy taking pictures of nature for that is the only way that I get to feel the good times. This is a feeling that I can't let go in a hurry as well.

I would have to agree a beach sunset photo is one of my favorites. It gives of a certain cool mood that gives off a sense of euphoria.

There has been a lot of photos of beach sunset but it doesn't stop to amaze me either. Often, it's not only the beauty that is being captured but the feeling that it elicits from us. The horizon, the sea against the sunset hues all blend into such beauty and mystery.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Taking a picture on a beach is a good idea. Especially if the sunlight is bright. It gives a perfect view of the sea. This is better than taking a picture of the natural phenomenon. It's safe and fun to do while taking a vacation.

I just want to see and capture the sunset and sunrise. Its basically the most peaceful scene in the world in my opinion. I have been crazy taking pictures of the sun setting or rising for several years specially during travels. And every time i take a shot, its still a different scenario.

It'll be called "lucky" if you happen to capture a natural phenomenon like natural disasters. It is risky to do so. But if possible, I would love to witness and capture lightnings and tornadoes, well without me risking my safety. That's why I said if it is only possible What Natural Phenomenon do you like capturing in photos or film?
But in terms of "safe" natural phenomena. What I love capturing the most are sunsets and staircase to the moon.
I just find those phenomena calming to look at. There is this peaceful feeling that you can't explain just by looking at them.

I would love to witness and capture a time lapse of Northern and Southern lights. I am really fascinated how stars and space are all made up together. Gazing underneath the dark sky at night with shooting stars passing is a total stress reliever even better if we have aurora borealis here but it is only in the northern and southern part of the earth where we can visible see it by our naked eyes. So definitely I want to capture different sides of this amazing phenomenon in HD of course.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

amelia88

Seeing the Northern or Southern lights is something on my bucket list. It really does look so incredible and other-worldly! I've actually seen places in Finland where you can sleep overnight in an igloo accommodation to see the Northern lights in all their glory. I definitely want to do that at some point in my life!

That's included in my bucket list. I really want to see the Aurora Borealis, it is said that it looks magical and enchanting, although the Aurora Australis which can be seen in some parts of Australia and Chile is said to be not as good as the northern lights.

Yes, I've been to Australia before and never saw the Aurora Australis - I think you have to be all the way down in the southern part of Tasmania to see it.

Aurora borealis is one of the things I would love to see in person, hopefully I get to see one in action in the future and actually get to take a picture myself! It's one of the best-looking natural effect out there where you don't need to put yourself in harm's way just to experience it.

Before I even saw the first post here I also thought lightning - it's something that really is unique to my area (we don't get lightning storms all that often!) so when they do occur it's special being able to capture it on camera.

I agree, i think capturing lightning takes timing and being in the right place. Also i think capturing it in good quality is very hard with normal cameras so you really need to invest on the equipment. But definitely it's all worth it.

I like taking pictures of plants that were planted close to me. One thing that I like about nature is that I get to make the pictures green which is nice to look at. Also, I don't joke when we are talking about taking pictures of the sky especially when the moon is coming out in the evening. Both are nice pictures that I enjoy taking each time I feel like.

Rainbows are a great natural phenomenon as well. Back when I was a kid I used to take photos of it every time it appears and somehow I am wondering where would be both of the rainbow's end. I really wish that if it appears I would like to be on one end and take photos of it but seems really impossible. I know it's just a reflection of the light on rain droplets and physically not a thing to touch but still it's really amazing on sight.

I agree, rain is a good prospect but i think, also one of the most difficult natural phenomenon to capture. Also i think you can't have good quality pictures of rain if you only have a phone. So having the right equipment is essential if want rain as subject.

I would like to capture thunderstrikes but it would take a lot of skill in setting up the right camera settings. It would also need great timing because you would have to capture it during its strike. I have only seen other people's images of thunderstrikes and I haven't tried capturing one myself.

I must admit that I also love to capture thunderstorm but it's good to mention as well that it scares the death out of me because there was a dangerous experience I had one time back.

I'm a lover of things of nature, animals, rocks, rivers, mountain and rainfall. When you are good with capturing such pictures, you are definitely going to fall in love with such arts.

There's not much colors in it but the mixed emotions I feel whenever I see them make me appreciate this scenery.

One of the best views I've ever witness. Taking pictures of sunset is also part of my favorite. Underwater as well. But my dream just like in the post above is to capture the Aurora Borealis in its glory. Its a testament of God's glorious designs.

I think the destructive effects of a flood or a flooded urban area like major thoroughfares is a good subject. Recently we had wide spread flooding here in my country and I took some photos and it turned out great.

I would like to take a picture of Polar Stratospheric Clouds. These pearl-like colorful clouds are also known as nacreous clouds. I heard that these clouds can only form at a very low temperature. They are beautiful and like a rainbow scattered on the clouds. I believe that these clouds are just perfect for nature photography.

I like taking photos of the sunset. Although it occurs everyday, for me, every moment that I had to witness it I have to cherish and appreciate it because not everyone is lucky to finish a day, that is why I always take a photo of it. Its beauty is uncomparable and you need to have a lot of patience to see it. I also like to take photos of the night sky. Especially the time when the stars are out. I tend to use the camera of my phone when taking photos, and it still gave good results of the photos.

I've seen photos of drought stricken places with the ground soil totally dried creating cracks for miles and I would like to take a photo of such occurrence.

When flowers bloom. Catching that on camera. When that flower is opening up! It's amazing!

I would like to film the butterfly flying around. I have once seen an extra ordinary butterfly. It has all blue colored butterfly. People say that the butterfly could bring good luck or fortune. I only have my smartphone to capture it.

We're being ravaged by a strong typhoon now so its called a hurricane western countries and there's a lot of water spouts or tornadoes on water and I really want to take a photo of it. I mean it's literally nature at its wildest.

There was one natural phenomenon called St. Elmo's fire which I find mysterious. It will be an awesome thing to capture this in a photo. I tried to search online but I haven't seen a proper photo taken. They say it's like a ring of fire or a ball of fire which usually appears after the rain. I'm not sure if there's an actual physical form or just some kind of illusion created by light.

I just saw a photo of pillar of lights on the net and can't help but remember this topic. I guess I'm attracted to colors and light that apart from rainbows and northern lights, the pillar of lights also caught my attention. These are strips of light in the sky that is formed because of the effect that small ice crystals in the atmosphere make when light reflects on it.

I am addicted to autumn leaves and the sea. If on a walk, I have to take constant pictures of what is underfoot and my favourite is to catch below waves as they roll in. Then I go mad somewhere like Lunapic, seeing as I have no idea how to edit photos for myself and make all sorts of interesting pictures that will possibly become book covers for ebooks. Nothing ever seems to stay at what it originally was.

Everything in the nature is beautiful and capturing the beautiful moments of a natural phenomenon is definitely a memorable experience.

I like to capture the ocean, the waves, waterfalls, and the most fascinating and the most popular phenomenon of Sunrise and Sunset are my favourite.

I don't have a specific phenomenon in mind because whatever beautiful things that I see, I take pictures of them. I like capturing the blooming and wilting of flowers. I love capturing the blue sky, sometimes, the clouds that turn into orange, the dusk, the stars and the moon. I love taking pictures of the rain. I like the green leaves of plants and trees that appear so bright on pictures. I love taking pictures every beautiful thing on Earth that it's very hard to choose which my most favorite is.

Sunsets, definitely! I love the way the sun meets the ocean on the horizon and how the sky appears majestic with hues of pink, blue, and gold. It makes for a very warm and romantic setting. It's also convenient since the picture-perfect moment stays like that for a while, unlike spontaneous events like lightning.

Aside from sunsets, I also love night skies, but it's very difficult for me to capture good photos with my smartphone. My camera cannot capture the stars and clouds as well as the colors of the sunset. For now, I'm satisfied with looking at others' photos of night skies. One day, I will be able to save up for a decent camera and take good photos of starry night skies!

Have you ever tried taking pictures while it's raining on a sunny day? I guess it would have been much better if I had a professional-grade camera, but the pictures were amazing. Rain on sunny days is rare, but it happens. And the pictures you'd get while this is happening are truly priceless.

I know what you mean, it's called a Sun Shower, it's a rare atmospheric phenomenon when it rains hard even if the sun is shining. And it could be a very good time to shoot some amazing photos.

I don't know if flower gardens in full bloom can be considered as a natural phenomenon, but it really looks good in photos. Every springtime, flower gardens becomes a sort of spectacle here because you would see the whole garden or flower farm blooming with different flowers.

I really like to take photos of sunsets and sunrises. It's a very cliche answer I know, but there are so many beautiful ones and they're different all over the world. No two photos will ever be the same and it's significantly less dangerous than trying to take photos of dangerous weather.

What Natural Phenomenin do you like capturing photos or film: I am afraid of those phenomenon and don't have any idea to try to capture it once, I don't have enough courage to take a photos during those times, I rather hide my self into the corner to be more safe or sleep cover with a blanket.
