Amateur Weatherman Snaps Stunning Pictures

For many, it is a hobby that would require far too much patience. But Kris Dutson from Compton Valence waits for hours just to capture the perfect images of storm clouds breaking. He 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. He sometimes waits for months on end before returning to a particular spot at the right time of year to catch astonishing images.

These are very beautiful, but I think the article is misleading, making the reader believe that Mr. Dutson waits for that "perfect" shot. In essence, these are composite shots, assembled rather than snapped with a single click of the shutter. Don't get me wrong, they're beautiful, but he didn't have to wait all that long to get the images above.
