Pursuing the storm

Storm chaser Mike Olbinski documents his obsessive pursuit of tornados and supercell storms in this video.

He spent more than 3 months of travelling and shooting, driving more than 45,000 kilometres across 10 states of the USA and shooting more than 90,000 frames of stunning high-definition timelapse photography.

The results are incredible: “I saw the most incredible mammatus displays, the best nighttime lightning and structure I’ve ever seen, a tornado birth caught on time-lapse and a display of undulatus asperatus that blew my mind. Wall clouds, massive cores, supercell structures, shelf clouds…it ended up being an amazing season,” Olbinski writes.
