I forgot to write up a blog post for this Pic of the Week, but here is capture I made on one of my recent storm chases a few weeks back. I went chasing with my friends Jaden and Ryan and we watched this magnificent shelf cloud roll over our heads. While the storm was not that impressive, the light hitting the underside of the storm was spectacular--in fact it was one of the most picturesque sunsets I've seen in a while. I set my Nikon D4 and Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC lens to timelapse the whole sequence. This is a still image from the almost 1000 image timelapse sequence that I wll release in my 2018 Timelapse video later this year. The lightning during this time was incredible, several bright pink bolts would jump out ahead of the downdraft and flash intensely in the colorful sunset. Great photography was made by everyone and although we didn't get in the best position for storms, we did get in the best position for photography. 


Impressive. The time lapse will be amazing.
