1. The Great Plains of the United States produce the most beautiful thunderstorms, supercells, and unique cloud structures in the world. I spent the summer of 2013 on the northern Great Plains photographing some of these storms.

    Shot in Wyoming and South Dakota.

  2. It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final (maybe not!) Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don't think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I've ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.

    The first Stormscapes here (may ease you into the second one): vimeo.com/86112567

    High plains storms are some of the most beautiful and wild in the world. I spent May - September 2014 photographing all types of severe weather in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado. This time lapse project is a result of that effort. From rainbows to tornadoes, there is a little bit of everything in here.
