Monsoon Time Lapse

Sometimes we must speed up reality to get an adequate understanding of the beauty and complexity of natural processes. Mike Olbinski has created a Monsoon time lapse video. The video is awe inspiring. You will likely never look at a thunderstorm the same way again.

“All summer long when I’m chasing storms, I’m also time-lapsing. It’s actually my main goal when I’m out there. A clip here and a clip there. Some days you get nothing great, some days you get SIX amazing scenes in a single afternoon. A powerful rain shaft. An intense hail core dump. Shelf clouds. Dust storms. Lightning. The Milky Way. That’s what I’m capturing out here in Arizona between June 15th and September 30th every year, which is our official monsoon window. And this is the result of all that time spent.”

The video speaks for itself.
