Best Lightning Storm Timelapse Ever!

lightning-storm-timelapse

Watch “Transient” which is a new incredible short film by storm chaser and timelapse photographer Dustin Farrell.

It is compiled from storm chasing adventures this past summer, the lightning footage you see in the video was captured in uncompressed raw at 1000 frames per second with a Phantom Flex4K.

Farrell followed storms for over 30 days this past summer, traveling nearly 20,000 miles in the process.

On Vimeo he says:

“Lightning is like a snowflake. Every bolt is different. I learned that lightning varies greatly in speed. There are some incredible looking bolts that I captured that didn’t make the cut because even at 1000fps they only lasted for one frame during playback. I also captured some lightning that appear computer generated it lasted so long on the screen.”
