I happen to be a huge fan of time-lapse video, the technological marvel that allows us to watch events develop and play out much faster than they do in real time.
I’m also fascinated by the incredible energy, power and eerie beauty of lightning flashes and thunderstorms.
The intriguing time-lapse video featured below condenses several hours of thunderstorm creation magic down to a mere 78 seconds.
During that time you’ll witness the fascinating formation of a lightning storm as it evolves from just a few gathering clouds into one of nature’s most dangerous, but also most beautiful phenomena.
Watch, and enjoy…
