Stunning Landscapes Show the Ferocity of Nature


Being stuck out in the fields as these ominous clouds approach must be a terribly frightening experience. As the storm moves in, the rain pours down, and lighting strikes, 61-year-old German photographer Franz Schumacher doesn’t run for cover.

These marvelous landscapes are a gorgeous display of a fierce storm set directly against an otherwise peaceful and natural calm.
