London weather is a big part of the culture; a common topic of conversation with a big impact on how the city feels.
I like the fog. It slows down the pace of life to make everything quieter and more mysterious.
(If you look closely, you can just about make out the Tower Bridge in this image.)

An early morning fog rolls through the trees in St Marys Pass State Reserve, Tasmania.
This week’s reader photo was taken by Jason L. Stephens in St Marys Pass State Reserve, Tasmania.
“A stunning foggy morning during winter.
Tasmania sure does get cold, yet is so amazingly beautiful.
It sure made up for the 400km round-trip for a clouded out sunrise on the East Coast!”

An isolated cumulonimbus (an extremely dense, vertically developed cumulus with a low dark base and fluffy masses that extend to great heights, usually producing heavy rains, thunderstorms, or hailstorms) overshoots the tropopause as we deviate around it at 37000 FT south of Panama City, Panama.
The only light source is the powerful lightning within the storm.
In Arizona, Veteran storm chaser and photographer Mike Olbinski captured the stunning beauty of monsoons in timelapses and stills while chasing storm systems across America.
After years on the road the photographer has perfected his set up and takes every setback in his stride as he tries to get ahead of every storm.

We are Jake and Jo – astrophotographers based in Queenstown, New Zealand who spent Winter photographing the night sky in some of New Zealand’s most beautiful locations.
We are passionate about shooting the stars and often stay out till dawn in freezing temperatures to make the most of a clear night.
On our adventures we have managed to capture meteors, the Aurora Australis, zodiacal light, air glow, satellites, shooting stars and of course the milky way.
We are constantly trying to find new locations and planning our next adventure – we never thought that we could become obsessed with chasing the stars!
