Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing approaching storms in this photo contest with chances to win an Amazon Echo and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Lorenz Holder for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. "I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is those mountains that have always played a major role in my life. I was fascinated by photos that could describe a whole scene, a whole story or even a whole day, in just one small moment caught on film. This fascination was one of the biggest motivations for me to start my career as a professional photographer. Right now I work as senior photographer for Pleasure Snowboard Magazine and as a staff photographer for Nitro Snowboards."
