    Find more of my work here: http://www.mikeolbinski.com Also follow me on Instragram for storm photos and whatnot - http://instagram.com/mikeolbinski Still print of this storm can be found here if interested: http://gallery.mikeolbinski.com/stormchasing/h6015e87e#h6015e87e Technical deets: Canon 5D2, Rokinon 14mm 2.8...first three clips were at 1-second intervals = 880ish photos, the last sequence was around 90, 5-second exposures Music by Kevin MacLeod - http://incompetech.com/ ------------- It took four years but I finally got it. A rotating supercell. And not just a rotating supercell, but one with insane structure and amazing movement. I've been visiting the Central Plains since 2010. Usually it's just for a day, or three, or two...but it took until the fourth attempt to actually find what I'd been looking for. And boy did we find it. No, there was no tornado. But that's not really what I was after. I'm from Arizona. We don't get structure like this. Clouds that rotate and look like alien spacecraft hanging over the Earth. We chased this storm from the wrong side (north) and it took us going through hail and torrential rains to burst through on the south side. And when we did...this monster cloud was hanging over Texas and rotating like something out of Close Encounters. The timelapse was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 lens. It's broken up into four parts. The first section ends because it started pouring on us. We should have been further south when we started filming but you never know how long these things will last, so I started the timelapse as soon as I could. One thing to note early on in the first part is the way the rain is coming down on the right and actually being sucked back into the rotation. Amazing. A few miles south is where part two picks up. And I didn't realize how fast it was moving south, so part three is just me panning the camera to the left. During that third part you can see dust along the cornfield being pulled into the storm as well...part of the strong inflow. The final part is when the storm had started dying out and we shot lightning as it passed over us. Between the third and fourth portions we drove through Booker, Texas where tornado sirens were going off...it was creepy as all heck. And intense. I hope you enjoy this. Once thing I've learned about timelapsing is that I always wish it would be longer or wouldn't end. I wish I had been south and been able to record this storm come at me for 45 minutes. But I love it the way it is. I wasn't ever certain I'd see structure like this even though it's been such a goal of mine. But we did it. And by we, I mean myself and my buddy Andy Hoeland, who knows his crap and got us into position so we could chase this storm. Without him along I don't know if I get this timelapse.

              Short doco on Pierce. A Texan native who loves his guns! Shot on the RED Epic and Phantom Flex. A hard subtitled English version is here: http://vimeo.com/32805807 Am not a gun fan at all. I would say I am quite anti-them for my own reasons... but I am damn curious about why people have a fascination for them so I wanted to make this film to get a glimpse into why someone loves them so damn much... You can read more about why I wanted to make this, my thoughts behind this and the technical stuff by clicking here: http://philipbloom.net/?p=15798 Music by Drew Barefoot from www.withetiquette.com

                      An Adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe Poem entitled "A Dream Within A Dream" Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand- How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep- while I weep! O God! can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream? Shot on the RED Scarlet with Canon L lenses. Enjoy :-)
