|Mike Olbinski strikes again with his new monsoon|
storm time lapse compilation. Just awesome.
Some of his work has already been featured in this here weather blog thingy.
However, you can never get too much of Mike Olbinski.
He says he logged 48 days and 17,000 miles, mostly in Arizona during the summer monsoon storm season capturing these storms.
He's collected images of the storms into an artistic time lapse compilation that is just mesmerizing to watch over and over again.
This is true whether or not you're a weather geek.
I love how in many of the segments, you can see the thunderstorm microbursts heavily crashing to the ground. I'm sure whoever or whatever was under those microbursts had quite a jolt of wind and rain, to say the least!
He captures the bubbling up of towering thunderheads, strobe light lightning at night that makes you almost feel like you're in a bad 1980s nightclub, and dust storms blasting across the desert landscape.
Here's the video:
