50 Amazing Weather Photos from 2012

I’m kind of a weather nerd. It goes with liking Geography, and maps, and navigation, I guess. You can see a series of truly amazing photos at SKYE for AOL.

Here is one of my favorite photos – a long time ago, I lived in Heidelberg, and I can remember the Neckar river freezing, but not this hard.


Here is another, taken in Florida, called Fire Rainbow. I have never seen this kind of reflection, but oh . . . I would love to see it!


It’s an amazing series of photos, taken round the world, of weather related phenomena. Go see for yourself.

  1. The Heidelberg photo is great. Do you know when it was taken? I lived in Heidelberg in the 1950s and later and the river froze twice in the 50s. Or is photo from Feb. 2012 when I think it also froze?

  2. i believe the photo is from 2012; I believe that series is the best weather photos of 2012. Heidelberg was a very special place to live for so many Americans, now all the American places are closing, including the American high school – this year, and the functions being transferred to other posts. Amazing, who woulda thunk it?

    • So true what you say. I lived in HD for 7 years myself (in two pieces) and love it, and I now edit a newsletter for people who went to high school there from 1946-65…. No one would have thought it would be active for 68 years – but now that it is closing it seems too soon. Certainly it’a the end of an era but the US facilities are apparently not needed now for defense any more.

      • I ended up living much of my adult life in pieces here and there in Germany 🙂 and near enough to Heidelberg to go often. When I went to grad school, classes were held in HAHS, and I grinned every time I got to use the teachers restroom. I was in my 30’s, and I still felt like a high school kid using it, like ‘what if I get caught,’ LOL. I’m outside your demographic by a tiny bit, though.

      • Wow, lucky you, to have been there so much; I’m only a visitor now, and that is different from living there. I do have some very good German friends I’ve known since the 50s, 60s and 70s. Don’t know your demographic but I arrived in Heidelberg at 10 in 1953….
