“Pulse”

Featured Video Play Icon

Photographer Mike Olbinski returns with another incredible storm-chasing timelapse video, this time all in black-and-white. To me, that choice helps “Pulse” emphasize the ominous majesty of these supercells and tornadoes by highlighting the textures that make up the clouds. Watching clouds in timelapse, they seem to materialize from nowhere as moisture drawn up from the land cools and condenses. Sped up, suddenly the convective rotation and the roiling turbulence inside clouds is perfectly clear. I especially love the sequence beginning at 2:25, where a distant black line slowly transforms into an incredible landscape marked with successive waves of rolling, turbulent clouds. Watch this one on a large screen at a high resolution, if you can. You won’t regret it! (Video credit: M. Olbinski)
