Mike Olbinski is a wedding photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona. When he isn’t doing weddings, he’s out chasing storms. Below is a glorious time lapse video of a rotating supercell near Booker, Texas, on the border with the Oklahoma panhandle. The structure of this storm is amazing. It spawned no tornados, although the sirens in the small town of Booker were going off and the whole situation was quite “intense”. These storms are unpredictable, which is the reason that the video is in four parts, as Olbinski and his buddy Andy Hoeland had to keep moving. Please take the time to read the description beneath the video on Vimeo; it paints quite an exciting picture.

The camera used was a Canon 5D Mark II with a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 lens. Brilliant work!
