Nobody can throw a spectacular light show like nature can. Timelapse photographer Ron Risman is well aware of this, so he chased a storm to create a magnificent timelapse of thunderstorm raging over a field in Kansas. He shot it in 4K and combined it with epic music (reminds me of music from Warcraft). As a result, he got spectacular thunderstorms striking at the beat of the song. It’s amazing for both watching and listening. Take your earphones, play the video, and enjoy!
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.
