Gorgeous Supercell Storm Footage!

Photographer Mike Olbinski has been visiting the Central Plains to shoot it's storms since 2010, and last week he encountered a supercell straight out of an apocalyptic thriller. The views in this timelapse are breathtaking! It's incredible to watch this massive storm tear through the fields near Booker, TX. There really isn't much more that I can say, just watch the video. Well done Mike! Amazing footage

Really nice shots man. You're brave, I don't know if I would've stayed so close to that storm for that long!

Haha...it's a bit nerve wracking sometimes...this was actually a lot closer than it looked. Also when we headed south the tornado sirens were going off in Booker, so that was a bit weird!

Thank you Patryk...looks simple, but I was just happy that the 15 things I had to do in the span of 60 seconds to set it up and get it running all went correctly haha.

yo mike , how long was the interval for the timelapse and shutter speed for this storm if you dont mind sharing.

Mike Olbinski's picture

I don't...the first three clips were shot every second...around 880 total shots over the course of 24 minutes with a break in there to drive south a few miles. The final clip was a bunch of 5 second exposures.
