In a normally predisposed site, a natural disaster is the pernicious effect of a more or less violent and even a paroxysmal natural event on the normal course of a geodynamics phenomenon; earthquake, volcanic eruption, tsunami, landslides, floods, storm , cyclones...When ignored, underestimated and/or not well forcast, their impacts on the arrangements, structures and people of vulnerable human settlements exposed to a "natural" risk whether it's identified or not, could be very dangerous and even deadly
Photography is able to fix, in a split second, an absolutely realistic image, with all the details of the moment and a unbelievable lighting atmosphere, that would be quite different a few minutes later. A good landscape photography is always unique and not reproducible. If it is really good, it can hardly be copied with a better shot! When you intensely care about beautiful cliches that can be admired in exhibitions, galleries or art works, photographing nature with a master's eye is the best shortcut for you to achieve what you're aiming for.
