Cristophe Jacrot is a master of "bad weather" photography.
"In my opinion, there are two ways of capturing the world for a photographer; on the one hand grasping its horror, and on the other sublimating it. I have chosen the second. More specifically, I like the way rain, snow and “bad weather” awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me, mainly in the big cities. (climatic excesses are another topic).
I see these elements as a fabulous ground for photography, an under-used visual universe with a strong evocative power, and with a richness of subtle lights. This universe escapes most of us, since we are too occupied getting undercover. Man becomes a ghostly silhouette wandering and obeying the hazards of rain or of snow, into the eternity of the climate ...
My approach is deliberately pictorial and emotional."
Here are some of his wonderful shots from Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
Appuru Pai has taken some fantastic long exposure photos of the Yurikamome transit line that travels between the Japanese cities of Shimbashi and Toyosu. I love the dynamic lines created by the train's movement and the variety of colors you would never notice when just riding a train. You can check out some other photos from Pai on his Flickr.
These photos are from mostly from different projects, but they all have one thing in common, great use of light. Dan Holdsworth has found a way to compose interesting photographs by using different light sources as an emphasis. He's used everything from the beam shining out of a mountain, to the aurora borealis to a solitary lampost. I'm not sure whether this has been done on purpose, but it is quite effective.

It takes a truly gifted photographer to capture the essence of nature, but Moro has done just that. He makes you feel perfectly in tune with the mountains, fields, and lakes in his photos. There is something truly majestic about his photos. If you like these you can check out hundreds more at his portfolio on 35photo.
