Featured Photographer Mark Boardman

Mark Boardman - StormHour Featured Photographer
Featured Photographer Mark Boardman

by Mark Boardman

July 13, 2018

Mark is a weather and landscape photographer from Macclesfield. He was a nominee for the 2016 World Weather Photographer of the year award and is often spotted in the hills of east Cheshire taking photos of clouds.

Mark created StormHour as a platform for weather and landscapes photographers to showcase their work.

The majority of Mark's photographs are taken in east Cheshire, England and Anglesey, Wales.

1. What was your most memorable weather event?

In February 1999 I was skiing in Tignes, in France. It started snowing after a couple of days and didn't stop for several more. Within 3 days we had 5 feet of fresh snow, all skiing was cancelled and we were caught out in a small avalanche. Although memorable this was also the same week that the Galtür avalance in Austria killed 31 people.

2. Which is your favourite photo and why?

The picture below was nominated for the World Weather Photograph of the year in 2016. It is a late evening hail shower over Jodrell Bank Observatory. For composition I wanted to give a sense of scale, and placing the relatively small telescope next to the massive size of the small hail shower really did this. I also had to be patient and catch the shower just at the right time. I took maybe 20 photos in the space of ten minutes.

3. From a purely photographic point of view where would you most like to visit?

Newfoundland. From the fjords of Gros Morne National Park to the capes and coves of the eastern shoreline, would love to visit...particularly in winter!
