Los Angeles and NYC-based photographer John Francis Peters has always had a deep connection to nature. Growing up near the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, the surrounding streams and rivers have long been a source of calm and inspiration for him. This past summer after an extended time away on an assignment in Pakistan, he found himself back at the water’s edge, this time to create The Stream, an evocative series capturing his steadfast love for nature’s flowing waters. We recently asked him more about the project.
Phoenix-based photographer Mike Olbinski gets right in front of the action, capturing a powerful supercell storm near Booker, Texas. Supercells are thunderstorms with a rotating powerhouse within them, known as a mesocyclone, making them the most severe of thunderstorms. Olbinski’s footage is as peaceful as it is ominous, showcasing nature in all its force and beauty.
