Apocalypse WOW! Man photographs beauty and the beast as pretty wife poses in front of giant storms
A man has photographed a stunning set of images of beauty and the beast – as his pretty wife poses in front of epic storms.
Nicolaus Wegner, 34, snaps other half Daow, 32, dangerously close to tornados, hurricanes and lightning storms.
But the results are spectacular – as she stands fearlessly looking towards Mother Nature’s most extreme creations.
The couple use forecast tools to predict where storms will show before chasing them down and waiting for them to materialise.
Most of their shots are taken across Wyoming, USA, but sometimes they travel to neighbouring states like Montana and Nebraska.
The pair, who live in Casper, Wyoming, admit there is an element of danger in their work.
Daow said: “I’m a little nervous sometimes – but I find the experience exciting and scary at the same time.
“Life is short so I try to enjoy the moment.”
Nicholaus revealed lightning is the most dangerous element to deal with and has halted their shoots in the past.
He added: “I try usually to set up well before the storm gets to us.
“Daow does well with the danger but we communicate and if either of us feels unsafe then we pack up and move on.
“My two favourite subjects to photograph are storms and mountains.
“Mountains are epic in their scale but nothing compares to being next to a dramatic supercell.”
