Storms

WARNING: Contains flashing images.

This video was featured in a Shutterstock blog post entitled 10 awesome timelapse photography projects you need to see.

This a beautifully filmed record of storms forming over the American landscape. I love how the clouds billow and curl, gracefully, majestically, powerfully; and how the light plays off the clouds and adds to the drama. I love how some of the clouds turn black and then dump their water as rain, and how the lightning echoes around inside the storm.

And I love the courage of Mike Olbinski, the film maker, who ensured the camera stood perfectly still while these monsters were forming around him.
