The Royal Meteorological Society (RMS) has announced the winner of its Weather Photographer of the Year award, with lightning strikes and billowing storms among the top entries.

Gareth Mon Jones won the overall prize for his image of a cloud inversion filling the valley beneath him in Snowdonia.

Some two dozen stunning images were included among the winners and shortlisted entries, ranging from snow-covered trees backed by the Northern Lights to massive waves crashing into a lighthouse at sunrise.

Liz Bentley, the chief executive of the RMS, praised the “quality and quantity of outstanding images” submitted for the 2019 competition.

“The photographs speak volumes about our obsession in the weather – capturing its beauty, its power and its fragility in the face of human activity,” she added.

There are 24 pictures in all - and you can see them in a gallery linked in the full article.

With so many lovely pictures, it's difficult to pick a favourite; however, I personally found the "In Slow Dance" aurora photo to be spectacular. Reminds me of playing Skyrim, really :lol: .
