When I’m heading out location scouting or to do a shoot, we often drive through rain 3 or 4 times before we get there. The weather around here is full of all sorts of different microclimates, some small, some large. So it’s not uncommon to see columns of rain coming down in the distance.
Rarely, though, are they as dramatically beautiful as they are in this video from photographer and filmmaker Mike Olbinski. This timelapse film took over 85,000 frames and 36 days of shooting to complete. It’s stunning work, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Such fantastic and beautiful scenes. When you see it on this scale, you really start to get a sense of the kind of power that mother nature has. Mike is also responsible for another fantastic weather related timelapse film, Vorticity, which was equally as impressive.
These weather related timelapses are getting me excited now autumn seems to finally be kicking in here in the UK. I’m not sure I’ll see anything quite as dramatic as Mike seems to, but it’s worth a look.
What do you think of Mike’s latest timelapse film? Have you shot any of your own this year? Let us know your thoughts, and show off your own work in the comments.
