30 Heart-Wrenching Natural Disaster Photographs

Natural disasters occur every so often in various parts of the world, and can range from forest fires and volcanic eruptions to avalanches and blizzards, as well as hurricanes, tornados and tsunamis.  Whenever a natural disaster occurs, it has wide reaching impacts on local and global ecosystems, and brave photographs often venture to capture natural disaster photography.

In this post, we’ve gathered up 30 heart-wrenching natural disaster photographs ranging from forest fire photography, blizzard photography, hurricane photography, tsunami photography, landslide photography, avalanche photography and tornado photography.  Out of respect for the victims of the recent earthquake, tsunami and nuclear incident in Japan, we have not included any photographs of this tragic event, however, we would encourage you to consider donating to charities that will assist the people of Japan and victims of the disasters there.
